Firearms being piled up at Trade Unions House, Kyiv City Administration, opposition no longer able to control radicals – interior minister
Interior Minister of Ukraine Vitaliy Zakharchenko has said he is concern over the information that firearms are being gathered at the House of Trade Unions and premises of Kyiv City State Administration, and the civil conflict will get worse.
"The recent events in Ukraine showed that our attempts to settle the conflict by not using force have been in vain. Our appeals haven't been heard, the agreements for truces are violated… According to information received by law enforces, firearms being piled up at House of Trade Unions and Kyiv City State Administration," reads the report from Interior Minister to Ukrainian citizens and representatives of the foreign states.
He noted that petrol bombs are again being used against police despite opposition and authorities continuing to hold talks. Besides, leader of Radical Party Oleh Liashko has called for attacks on police.
"During the night one policeman was shot dead, and three policemen were captured on Independence Square. One of them is in hospital with a serious injury, and two still are being held in the building of Kyiv City State Administration," the minister added.
He stressed that the talks between police and leaders of protests and opposition deputies, which took place in the night, had no result.
"The opposition leaders don't want to disassociate themselves from radical forces, but are no longer capable of controlling them, exposing Ukrainians to danger," the minister said.
