Some organizers of yesterday protests near the Verkhovna Rada placed their bets only on provocations, which can be proved by the accidents of weapons acquisition. The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko writes that on his Facebook page.
"Security agencies had the information and there are established facts of possession and purchase of weapons by the members of illegal groups, which function inside the protesting crowd. The enhanced security is explained with exactly these facts,” he writes.
The head of the General Prosecutor’s Office specified that the right for peaceful protest actions is one of the main achievement of Maidan and that the government struggles to provide this constitutional proposition.
However in order to avoid provocations and to provide safety for the protesters themselves the entry to the rally zone shall be performed through the metal frames.
“Any changes in our country shall be possible only via political dialogue. Violence will kill the county. The cases of physical beating of citizens, law enforcers and members of parliament, protected by the law, shall be strictly prosecuted.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine’s National Police head Serhiy Knyazev reported that law enforcers prevented attempts to "aggravate the situation" and spill blood at the end of the rally near Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday.
