KIEV, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian Interior Ministry denied Monday earlier media reports that several officers from the special task police unit Berkut in western Ukrainian city of Ternopol submitted letters of resignation amid ongoing violent protests across the country.
The ministry said in its statement that “a number of websites reported that several officers from the Berkut unit in Ternopol filed letters of resignation,” but in reality there were no letters either from the officers or their commanding staff.
Ukrinform news agency reported last week citing a police source that four officers from the Berkut unit decided to quit police force.
The ministry earlier reported that up to 200 policemen were injured after a new wave of anti-government protests erupted more than a week ago in the country’s capital of Kiev and then spread to the rest of Ukraine. Video from the scene of clashes in Kiev showed people wearing masks and helmets to hurl flaming Molotov cocktails and chunks of concrete at police.
