The offenders were sentenced to imprisonment for 2 years under Part 2 of Art. 296 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (hooliganism committed by a group of persons) with exemption from serving the sentence with a probationary period of 1 year and taking into account the circumstance that aggravates the punishment in accordance with Art. 67 of the CCU. Also, the court partially satisfied the victim's civil claim and awarded him moral damages in the amount of UAH 60,000.
The war for Ukraine's independence is a war for free democratic European Ukraine. Without Ukraine, there will be no freedom, no democracy, no human rights. All Ukrainian people must unite at this time in the fight against our common fierce enemy, the Russian World. There is no time for disagreements now, and the Ukrainian LGBT+ community, as an integral part of our people, must do everything for our victory! In the Russian World, our existence — either as LGBT+ people or as Ukrainians — is simply impossible. Let us do our job in our places — in the army, in the Territorial Defense, in the workplace, as volunteers.
Together to victory!
