Journalists from RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service were assaulted by an unknown man while filming at a company headquarters near Odesa. The team were investigating a $3 million tender for vehicle license plates, which has been won by a company with no previous record of making license plates. During the assault, captured on camera, a journalist warns the man he'll call the police. The man says "fine, call the police." The camera was damaged during the incident.
