On his Facebook page, the deputy wrote that neither he nor any of his colleagues could be intimidated with such incidents.
“So far, briefly. These freaks will not intimidate either me or any of my colleagues. We fight further. They also hope to initiate a case against me because I, in self-defense, put one figure in the eye, ”Voloshin noted.
