KIEV, August 31 /TASS/. A National Guard soldier died of a shrapnel wound received during riots in front of Verkhovna Rada in Kiev on Monday, Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said clarifying his previous reports that the fighter had died of a bullet wound.
"The 24-year-old soldier named Debrin, a native of Kherson, was hit by a shrapnel in his heart rather than a bullet," Avakov wrote on his page in Twitter.
The interior minister also said that the bomb thrower detained in Kiev earlier in the day was a Svoboda (Freedom) party member from Sich, the administrative and military centre for Cossacks, especially Zaporizhian Cossacks.
Earlier on Monday, Avakov said that the National Guard fighter had died of a gunshot wound in his heart.
"One National Guard soldier received a gunshot wound in his heart. We thought it was a shrapnel but as it turned out, someone had fired shots on the quiet," Avakov wrote in Twitter.
More than 3,000 people opposed to amendments to Ukraine’s constitution set up pickets outside Verkhovna Rada at the time when the deputies were considering the constitutional amendments in part of decentralization of power in Ukraine earlier on Monday. After that, a protester from the crowd hurled a grenade at police cordons surrounding the parliament building.
According to Ukraine’s Interior Ministry, about 100 law enforcers were hurt in the clashes outside the Rada building. Ten police are in serious condition.
