The law enforcement would return the things to the owners, which were seized during the protest in Kyiv on February, 9. Artem Shevchenko, the Head of the National Police of Ukraine said, as 112.ua reports.
“The seized belongings would be returned to the owners in case of proving the things are not forbidden. The police officers seized them only as a preventive measure concerning all the participants in the demonstration,” Shevchenko said.
Shevchenko also added that the far right attackers should have waited for the return of their things, but not to attack the police department after they had been detained.
As we reported earlier, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Arsen Avakov commented on the clashes between the law enforcement and the far right near the Podil police department in Kyiv.
The police officers issued orders to release previously detained far-right attackers. The reason was the absence of enough pieces of evidence that could prove those people committed a crime.
The State Investigation Bureau (SIB) opened criminal proceedings after numerous accusations against the police in beating the far right near the office in Kyiv.
The law enforcement officers detained people who stormed the police department in Kyiv and fought with the police, the Kyiv police reported on Facebook.
The law enforcement officers saw a group of people with covered faces and chevrons of far-right C14 organization, included in the American terrorist base, on Kontraktova Square, Kyiv downtown, where the meeting of president's candidate Yulia Tymoshenko was taking place. They brought rubber-bullet handguns, Teren 4 pepper spray (carrying of which requires special permission) and knives. The police detained them and took them to the police station.
Soon the detainees were released, but the other far-right came to storm the police station and fought with law enforcement officers.
