Recall that Roman Bondarenko, an active resident of the “courtyard of changes”, went out into the courtyard in the evening of 11 November, when unknown persons in masks arrived to cut off white-red-white ribbons hanging on a fence. At some point a fight ensued.
Eyewitnesses say that Roman was pushed and hit his head. Then the man was bundled in a minibus and taken away. An hour and a half later, he was taken to an emergency hospital with cerebral edema. The young man was in critical condition all day. In the evening, he passed away.
Suddenly, the evening in support of battered Roman Bondarenko at Changes Square turned into the evening in his memory. For more than five hours people people kept coming from all over the city to the courtyard on Chervyakova street-Smorgovsky tract, and were there until midnight.
