"It all started with the fact that Andriy Beletsky refused to go through the search. Instead of the search, the National Corps went for a breakthrough and collided with the security forces. Now the situation has stabilized a little, "the message says.
The situation under the President's Office has already been commented on in the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The department confirmed that the clashes began due to a reluctance to pass the check for the absence of dangerous objects.
"The protesters did not want to pass a check for the dangerous objects before being admitted to the base and provoked clashes with the security forces," said a spokesman for the Ministry of Internal Affairs Artem Shevchenko.
According to him, law enforcement officers were forced to apply coercive measures.
The protesters demand to abandon the implementation of the so-called "Steinmeier formulas" into Ukrainian legislation and the resumption of water supply to Crimea.
