On 31 December, Pashynskyy got into a fight on the road near Kyiv and wounded local resident Vyacheslav Khimikus, 38, in the leg. The lawmaker said that the man first attacked him hitting a bottle on the head.

The man, wounded by Pashynskyy, stated that the lawmaker did not make a warning shot into the air, but aimed him at the chest. Only "by lucky coincidence" the bullet hit the victim in the leg.
