About 3,000 policemen will maintain law and order on the Independence Day on August 24, as Interfax-Ukraine news agency reports, referring to Head of Kyiv National Police Department Andriy Kryshchenko.
According to him, there are no risks of conflicts during the celebration of Ukraine's Independence Day.
"We do not see any risks. We do not see them during the event with the participation of the President of Ukraine, as well as on the Dignity March," Kryshchenko said, adding there will be about 8,000 participants in the procession.
The Head of the National Police Department said there were no reasons to worry.
Answering the question how many policemen would be involved to ensure law and order, Kryshchenko said the following: "There will be about 3,000 law enforcers together with the National Guard of Ukraine. I still do not know how many of them we will get outside, in the streets."
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes that there may be no alternatives to the Independence Day. Besides, the Ukrainians have every right to participate in the marches they want to.
