MOSCOW, April 05 /ITAR-TASS/. Berkut policemen did not shoot people on Maidan, former Ukrainian interior minister Vitaly Zakharchenko told reporters.
"I am 100 percent sure those were not policemen," he stressed, noting Berkut members were unarmed when they went to all sites.
On February 18 and 19, eighty six policemen received bullet wounds. Fourteen of them were killed. Among them were interior troops, Berkut members and traffic policemen who were shot when they stood there to ensure order, the ex-minister noted.
