KIEV, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Berkut police commandoes have used excessive force against the protesters in central Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, overnight to November 30, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka acknowledged on Friday. “This should be stated that the level of the use of force against the law enforcers did not match the danger of offences and the situation at the place of protests,” the general prosecutor said in the Ukrainian parliament on Friday.
In his words, 88 people, including two underage people, turned to the police with the pleas about causing bodily damage to them by the law enforcers. “The facts laid out in the pleas were proved true,” the general prosecutor added.
The opposition lawmakers urged Pshonka to resign over the recent protests in central Kiev. “The country’s parliament and the president decide on the future of the general prosecutor at his post. It is needed to act according to the law,” he replied.
