KIEV, June 15 (Itar-Tass) — For the first time ever since the start of Euro’2012 football championship games, Ukrainian police have brought in water cannons to downtown Kiev so as to be able to cool the fans off if passions in the crowd get overly high and heated.
“Poland’s sad experience has prompted us to this,” a policeman told Itar-Tass. “We wouldn’t like to see a repetition of those things here in Kiev and that’s why we’ve brought in water cannons.”
Kiev police say from 3,000 and 7,000 policemen have been put on duty “to ensure law and order during Friday’s game.”
“As for this moment, no major encroachments on public order have been registered,” Kiev police press secretary Igor Mikhalko said.
