Four members of Ukraine’s International Legion were involved in a drunken fight at a party last weekend in Kiev, news outlet ‘Strana’ reported on Saturday, citing police sources. The off-duty fighter’s antics ended up with one of them stabbing and hitting the others, according to the website.
A Briton, an American, a Canadian, and a Romanian got together at a private residence in the southeastern part of the Ukrainian capital, ‘Strana’ explained. What started as a drinking session soon allegedly spiraled into a quarrel and ended up in a physical fight.
During the scuffle, the British man stabbed his American and Canadian comrades in their arms and legs with a knife, and hit the Romanian, breaking his jaw, according to the report. All three men were subsequently hospitalized, the source explained. The UK national has not yet been arrested, Strana added, detailing how Ukrainian law-enforcement authorities were still assessing the incident.
The motives behind the violence remain unclear. Neither officials in Kiev, nor Western representatives, have provided any comments on the situation so far.
