KIEV, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian police commandoes have used the force to break up the protesters on Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, on November 30, mainly due to their resistance, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said at the Ukrainian parliament on Friday, informing the lawmakers about the investigation of the forcible dispersal of the protesters overnight to November 30.
“Aggressively spirited people, who were staying at Independence Square (called Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Ukrainian) at the time, were involved in the clashes with police,” Pshonka said.
