PARIS, October 27 – Novosti. A company of Ukrainians attacked a family of Russians in the French resort town of Deauville, and the police refused to detain the main brawler on the spot, a Russian woman named Anastasia, who lives in France, told Novosti.
“I have been living in France for 13 years, I myself am from Crimea, I have Russian, Ukrainian, and French citizenship. My parents and brother came to visit me for my birthday, they live and work in Crimea, they also have Russian, and a Ukrainian passport. I myself live in Paris , we went to Deauville for two days, it was Thursday, October 13,” Anastasia said.
He and his family went to dinner at the famous fish market in Deauville: there are tables opposite the stalls where you can try seafood. According to the girl, a company of eight people, four men and four women, 40-45 years old, already drunk, were sitting at one of the tables, they all spoke Russian.
The girls from this company persistently asked Anastasia’s mother where they were from, but the mother, recognizing their Ukrainian accent, did not answer.
While they were having lunch, the noisy company was talking loudly, singing songs, and then put music on the phone and began to sing along to the whole market. At the request of the market seller to turn the music down, they pretended not to understand him.
“Therefore, I go up to them myself and ask them to turn down the music. They start running into me, talking aggressively with me. Then my dad comes up and says: “Why are you talking to her like that? She politely asked me to turn down the music.” After which one of them abruptly stands up, as if he was waiting for this moment, and starts throwing himself at my dad: “Do you want to fight? Let’s go, let’s go, we’ll figure it out!”, – the Russian woman conveys the words of that man.
She asked her father not to mess with the drunk, and he sat back at the table.
“And this man, while dad was sitting with his back to him, came up from behind, grabbed him by the neck and hit him in the nose with his elbow! After that, we started to separate them, I began to shout that we would call the police. And I really called her. The police arrived. After that, these men immediately fell silent, the man who hit his father huddled in a corner, allegedly he had nothing to do with it, and the women began to take out Ukrainian passports and shout: “We are Ukrainians, and they are Russian aggressors!” the agency’s interlocutor said.
At the same time, as Anastasia emphasized, none of her family discussed politics at dinner.
“The Ukrainians drove the policeman so bad that he wanted to use (tear) gas against them, because he could not calm them down and take them out of this market … Then the Ukrainians asked to be taken to prison, because we are Russians. The policeman at some point said to the aggressive man: “If you are such a greyhound, let’s send you to your homeland, go fight there!” Anastasia recalled.
However, the police refused to detain the aggressor who hit her father, explaining that his nose was not broken and there was no blood.
“When the police left, one of the Ukrainians stood on the other side of the road and watched where we would go from the market. As a result, it turned out that they live in the same hotel with us. show your Ukrainian passport and say: “On what basis do you ask what room I live in? I am Ukrainian, and they are Russian aggressors!” the agency’s interlocutor added.
Anastasia said that upon returning to Paris, they filed a complaint with the police: her father about physical aggression, and she about threats based on nationality.
“Both statements were accepted. The police doctor also gave dad a certificate of incapacity for six days (he had a severe nose bruise). Now we are waiting for the institution of criminal cases,” she concluded.
