She was diagnosed a closed craniocerebral injury, nose bone fracture, numerous injuries and bruises by the doctors. The last time Roman had delivered several blows at the bicycle parking when she had been in the car, he had cut car wheels. Semeniuk applied to the police, but they refused to file a criminal case.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIM'S STORIES

Operation of the existing legislation does not cover domestic violence restraint, prevention, does not allow protecting victim before doing injuries, preventing a murder, committed at home, as the police does not have legal reasons for getting inside the house and apprehending the criminal. The Law defines “a domestic violence” and its types as well as allows the police to prevent crimes relating to spouses, children, close relatives, close partners.
