KIEV, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. As many as 234 people were detained, 140 of them arrested, at protest actions in Ukraine. “Violations of public order, massive riots, use of weapons, seizure of the building housing state authorities and attempts to actually create their own governing bodies” were reported in the country, the country’s Prosecutor General’s Office said in a statement on Thursday.
Four people died in protest actions, more than 500 people were injured, including 253 law enforcers, the Prosecutor General’s Office said.
The prosecutor’s office noted that the law on eliminating negative aftermath and avoiding prosecution and punishment over events that took place at peaceful assemblies was enacted in search for political compromise. Fulfillment of the law equally depends on protesters, law enforcement agencies and court authorities.
