KIEV, January 20.7 /ITAR-TASS/. Police in Kiev suffered a damage of $375,000 following fierce clashes with protesters on Sunday in the centre of the Ukrainian capital, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry said on Monday.
“They [protesters] burnt down four police busses and two special task vehicles,” Sergei Burlakov said. “The cost of the damage is estimated at three million hryvni [$375,000].”
Burlakov said clashes between demonstrators rallying against new laws restricting public protests and police continue in Ukraine’s capital, but law enforcers keep the situation under control.
Several dozen of protesters have been rallying on central Grushevskogo Street since Sunday and they are periodically hurling stones and Molotov cocktails at policemen, who in turn cast at the demonstrators stun and gas grenades. Some of the protesters attempt building barricades.
Burlakov said that some 100 policemen already sought a medical assistance since the clashes erupted on Sunday and 61 of them were put in hospitals. About 20 of demonstrators were detained, he added.
The municipal authorities’ press service earlier reported citing data from the Kiev healthcare department that over a hundred of protesters also turned for a medical assistance following the clashes.
