KIEV, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian Interior Ministry has received a report that an armed provocation is being prepared to result in one more fatality, the ministry’s press service told Itar-Tass on Friday.

The Interior Ministry calls on radical activists not to take extremist actions aimed at unleashing a civil war and stop sacrificing human lives. Attackers must remember about the inevitability of punishment for committed crimes. Police will make every effort for wrongdoers to be found and brought to justice under the Ukrainian law, the press service stressed.

Earlier, two protesters died at Grushevsky Street in Kiev. The deaths were caused by gunshot wounds. First Deputy Head of the Interior Ministry's main investigative department Vitaly Sakal stated that police had no such guns with such bullets. Investigators considered among other theories the version of the killing committed with the aim to provoke escalation of the conflict and justify use of arms by demonstrators, the official said.
