KIEV, March 18. /TASS/. Ukrainian police have detained several most active participants in street demonstrations in the town of Konstantinovka, which followed a lethal road accident involving a Ukrainian armored vehicle, the press-secretary of the Donetsk regional police force, Olga Yurasova, said on Wednesday.
"Police identified and detained a number of persons who actively participated in massive unrest and set fire to motor vehicles in the town of Konstantinovka on March 16. Restrictive measures against them are still to be taken," she said.
On March 16, while a convoy of Ukrainian armored vehicles was rolling through Konstantinovka, one of the armored vehicles hit a woman and two children. An eight-year-old girl died and the woman and little baby were taken to hospital. According to early findings, the vehicle’s driver was drunk.
As the Donetsk Region’s police headquarters said earlier, the incident sparked an angry public response. Local residents set fire to tires in front of the Ukrainian troops’ hostel and smashed windows in the building. On the site of the tragedy a group of 30 men overturned a traffic police vehicle. A rally of protest followed.
On Wednesday, the rally resumed on the site of the incident. Local people are demanding Ukrainian troops should leave Konstantinovka.
"The situation remains under control. Our men are doing their job on the site," Yurasova said.
On Tuesday, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry said "several instigators of massive unrest" all of them local residents had been detained.
Also, police detained four Ukrainian military and took them to the city of Kramatorsk.
