KIEV, February 21, 1:33 /ITAR-TASS/. No less than 75 people were killed in clashes between oppositionists and law enforcers in Ukraine’s capital Kiev, the country’s Health Ministry said on Thursday.
As many as 571 people turned for medical aid, 363 of them were taken to hospitals since February 18 as of Thursday evening, the ministry noted.
As many as 126 people asked for medical aid, 76 of them were taken to hospitals on Thursday.
Over the last few days the situation has worsened sharply in Ukraine, where opposition protests have been going on.
Protest actions launched last November against termination of drafting Ukraine’s association deal with the European Union grew from peaceful protests in the capital into nationwide armed standoff.
