KIEV, December 21./TASS/. Radical activists from the nationalist battalion Azov tried to set on fire on Monday the house of a local chief police officer from a settlement in the Ukrainian northeastern Kharkiv region, the Apostrophe online edition reports.
The attack in the settlement of Krasnokutsk was preceded by a brief meeting, where a group of young people wearing balaclavas and carrying Azov battalion flags distinguished themselves among local residents. The rally was held in protest against abuse of power by police leadership.
"Local authorities led by representatives of the Azov battalion headed to the houses of the chief of the district police department and his deputy, throwing stones at the houses, and some even throwing Molotov cocktails," it said. Besides, they broke the fences damaging some property in the yards, the edition said.
