KIEV, August 31. /TASS/. The protests that earlier moved away from the Verkhovna Rada building further to central Kiev are now over, the press service of the Interior Ministry said.
"The clashes are over. The police and the National Guard continue to provide maintenance of public order in the government quarter," the statement said.
According to the Interior Ministry, information about the victims is ascertained, "at the moment there are reports of two media workers who were injured during the unrest."
Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov earlier said a National Guard fighter had died of a bullet wound in his heart sustained during the riots near the Verkhovna Rada building.
