“They were beating and kicking that pregnant woman; there are hematomas and bruises in the photo; one of them twisted her, put his knees on her chest, pressed her to the floor and put handcuffs on her,” said Svyatoslav Khromenkov, a lawyer of the Public Verdict Foundation.
The incident occurred on September 28. The couple was picking up a light bulb; they screw it into the lamp and forgot to pay for it at the checkout separately.
