ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
The Governor of the Ukrainian city of Khmelnytsky was confronted and attacked at the Khmelnytsky Regional State Administration building on Wednesday (July 2) by an angry crowd demanding his resignation.
Leonid Prus was verbally and physically confronted by residents of Khmelnytsky. The crowds chanted 'resign' as he stood amongst them - before the confrontation became a physical one.
Prus told the crowd he believed he was fulfilling his duties. An angry resident strongly disagreed and began yelling at him.
Despite a police presence in the room, scuffles broke out and video footage shows Prus being hit and carried by the angry crowd.
The Khmelnytsky residents also scuffled with the police.
Prus, wearing a torn in half suit jacket, managed to leave the building through the window; only to be cornered by more dismayed residents outside.
