KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's Interior Ministry denied on Wednesday earlier media reports that police officers would play a conciliatory football match with participants of recent protests in Kiev, the country’s capital.
A number of social web-networks and several Ukrainian media reported that police and protesters were to play a friendly as a sign of reconciliation after almost two weeks of fierce clashes.
“We saw such reports, but we [the ministry] did not receive any proposals,” a spokesman said. Vesti.ua website said the match would be held on Wednesday and that the game's winners would receive two cups and t-shirts.
The ministry earlier stated that up to 200 policemen had been injured after the wave of anti-government protests erupted more than a week ago in Kiev, spreading to the rest of Ukraine.
Video reports from the scene of protests in Kiev showed people wearing masks and helmets to hurl flaming Molotov cocktails and chunks of concrete at police.
