In the town of Makariv in the Kyiv region, the owner of a local beauty salon was outraged by children's chalk drawings on the asphalt near her establishment. The children of a forced migrant from the temporarily occupied region of Zaporizhzhia, the wife of a soldier, Viktoria Sereda, drew blue and yellow flags and made inscriptions "Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes." The owner of the establishment, Irina Dvorskaya, made a scandal, demanding to wash off "this abomination", allegedly for the sake of the cleanliness of the yard.
What continuation did this scandal get, according to the TSN story.
On Friday, September 22, Victoria Sereda posted a video on social media, talking about a conflict with the owner of a beauty salon during a visit to this institution with children and a man who came on vacation. According to her, the businesswoman scolded the children and insulted her family because of children's drawings with chalk on the asphalt.
The very next day, when local residents learned about this case, even more drawings with blue and yellow flags and patriotic slogans appeared near this institution.
And on Sunday morning, the façade of the beauty salon and the square in front of it were painted with oil paints. Images of blue and yellow flags appeared on the asphalt, and multi-colored inscriptions "Glory to Ukraine" and "Glory to the Heroes" appeared on the windows of the institution. The owner of the beauty salon calls it "vandalism".
In a conversation with a TSN journalist, Iryna Dvorska denied any insults to state symbols, the military, or Viktoria Sereda's family.
The video from the surveillance cameras, which we managed to view, shows that communication is taking place between the owner of the institution and the family near it, but the recording took place without sound. Victoria's husband, who is now at war again, confirmed by phone that they were forced to leave the beauty salon without receiving services due to insults from the owner.
The owner of the beauty salon claims that her establishment was painted around two o'clock in the morning, during the curfew.
"It's unpleasant. I want the best for people, but you see how it turns out," says Iryna Dvorska.
Victoria Sereda denies the involvement of her family or acquaintances in this incident.
"As for the paint drawings, let the police figure out what punishment is provided. I am pleased that people react and support," she said.
By the way, during the stay of the film crew, local residents came to the beauty salon with a national flag to express their support for the soldier's wife.
The police promised to provide all comments on Monday, September 25.
