“Political candidates? You claim you all are honest and perfect, but you provoke clashes between officers and then you pay them dirty money for that. But we see respectful, honored politicians in public every day, although they order the law enforcement to act in a very bad way,” the Minister wrote.

He invoked politicians to stop and to strike a compromise on how to compete with each other fairly.

“Those people are always around, they greet you, smile to you and then they order fighters to affront their opponents, to throw firecrackers into the crowd of hundreds of people, to lie and to fuel hatred among society," Avakov said.

According to Avakov, in four different cities brilliant green have been seized from different sorts of provocateurs over one day.

As we reported earlier, 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.

As a result of the brawl, three police officers hospitalized with injuries.

C14, the Ukrainian far-right organization, is regularly involved in numerous attacks against civilians, students, journalists, lawyers, social activists, foreigners, minorities, LGBT activists, they often conduct hate crimes and often go unpunished. The organization's leader Yevhen Karas acknowledged the cooperation of Ukraine's Security Service.

C14, which has taken part over the spring in brutal anti-Roma raids with hammers, has recently been a recipient of Ministry of Youth and Sport grants totalling at least $14,000. 

Founded in 2010, C14 is named after the 14-word slogan “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children” of American Nazi David Lane.
