Four young people followed the journalist, BelaPAN reports. He tried to walk away but they caught up with him, dragged him to a back street and beat him there. Barazenka got a flat lip and was hit in the stomach a few times. “I am okay,” Barazenka said.

Separatist provocations have been organized by pro-Russia activists for a few days in Donetsk, Lugansk and Kharkiv Oblasts of Ukraine. Adherents of runaway ex-President Victor Yanukovich, local criminals and Russians are also taking part in them, the Ukrainian authorities say.
