Euromaidan protests: riot police had grenades with hazardous materials
Prosecutor General’s Office continues investigation into the crimes committed during the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine
During the assault on Euromaidan protesters on February 18, 2014, Berkut riot police and Interior Troops received grenades containing hazardous materials (UNIAN). The ammunition came from Russia illegally and never underwent proper expertise, said Serhiy Horbatyuk, Deputy Head of Main Investigation Department at Prosecutor General’s Office.
At a briefing in Kyiv, he added that normally, no police unit on the planet would use such ammunition. However, fighters of Berkut could have used it under the disguise of stun grenades and smoke pellets.
Horbatyuk also said that in February 2014, the-then government designed a plan to disperse Euromaidan protesters, which could involve murders.
