“Unfortunately, Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) has become a place today where fringe politicians, criminals, antisocial elements, alcoholics and drug addicts have found shelter,” said Zoryan Shkiryak, an adviser to the interior minister.
“Today, this place and those who are there pose a direct threat to Kiev residents and guests of the capital,” he warned.

“No doubt we should put an end to this,” Shkiryak said. “I think the case with those bandits, committing outright crimes under the guise of the ideals of the Maidan, should dot all the i’s.
“We will try to explain intelligently to people that it cannot go on this way,” he added.
