Two Ukrainians from the town of Iljichiovsk in the Odessa region of Ukraine were injured from traumatic weapons, trying to defend the statue of Lenin.

At night of February 23, a large number of local residents gathered on Strebko Square. The people came to defend the monument to Vladimir Lenin from the opposition.

At about two o'clock in the morning, a conflict sparked between two residents. A man, born in 1978, fired a traumatic weapon at two other residents. Both victims were taken to hospital.

The police opened a criminal case under article "Hooliganism" of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
