Romanian President Klaus Johannis condemned the actions of law enforcement officers during the dispersal of anti-government protests in Bucharest, when more than 435 people were injured. This Johannis stated on Facebook.

"True democracy provides for everyone's right to protest, but violence is unacceptable regardless of political choice, and I strongly condemn the brutal interference of the gendarmerie, disproportionate to the actions of most people in Victory Square," Johannis wrote.

He demanded urgent explanations from the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Romania on the events on Victory Square in Bucharest.

We recall that earlier clashes of people and police took place in Bucharest during the anti-government protests. Law enforcement officers used tear gas and water cannons. As a result of the collision 435 people were injured.

Many-thousand meeting against the ruling coalition led by the Social Democratic Party took place in Bucharest. The protesters called on the government to resign and hold early elections.
