As the fights between Mikheil Saakashvili’s supporters and the police in the downtown Ukrainian capital are over, the police have opened a criminal case about the attempt to capture Zhovtnevy Palace in Kyiv. Vyacheslav Abroskin, the Deputy Head of the National Police of Ukraine posted this on Facebook.
‘All those involved in the attempt to capture the building will be identified. The guilty ones will be brought to responsibility,’ he wrote.
As 112 International reported, Saakashvili and his followers held a rally in the city centre on Sunday; later, they headed to Zhovtnevy palace and tried to get inside. The law enforcers blocked the entrance; a fight occurred, with dozens of policemen breathing in some sort of tear gas. The law enforcers also used tear gas to repel some of the aggressors.
