All of them are accused under Article 294 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code — participation in staging mass riots. The Kiev police have previously announced the beginning of the investigation of 11 cases over mass riots that took place on December 1 along with attempts to seize administrative buildings in Kiev.
Ukraine's ruling Party of Regions is stating that "the dramatic events of the recent several days demonstrated in all obviousness the criminal intentions of political opposition forces and their readiness to start an active phase of a use-of-force scenario aimed at seizing power," said the party's statement for the media, circulated on Tuesday night.Recalling the seizure of a number of office buildings, including those of the Kiev City Council and the House of Trade Unions by "opposition extremists", the party's members believe that the "purposeful actions" are being performed in the country step by step. Those actions can be qualified as a coup attempt".
