According to the post (computer translated):

Katya died this morning. The reason is not the attack of sírčanoû acid.

Dead from the consequences, from the received powder, because Cory had a liter of acid and it killed her.

The Klíníčnu cause of death will show the autopsy.

But he won’t give answers to the question: who killed Cory Gandzûk?

Katya died.

The details will be later. Request not to disturb relatives. Friends for the day will provide more information.

The 33-year-old Handzyuk, a Ukrainian civic activist and adviser to the mayor of the Black Sea port city of Kherson, was attacked by a man who threw approximately a liter of sulfuric acid on her and ran away on July 31. The attacker is still at large. She was a sharp critic of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies.
