Ukrainian interior minister urges Maidan 'patriots' to go to front instead of parasitizing in central Kyiv
Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has said that police have information about those "who, under the guise of Maidan, commit unlawful actions," and vowed a due response.
"Police have a full dossier on everyone engaged in unlawful activities under the guise of Maidan. And police will take action," the interior minister said.
These "patriots" have some time to leave the center of Kyiv, "take up arms and go to the front, to really struggle for Ukraine in earnest and not parasitize in the center of the capital," he said.
Avakov also said that the Interior Ministry "has a plan on how to end this disgrace." "Humanely and in style. And if someone requires, with the confident force of persuasion too," he added.
"What is happening on Maidan now is a discreditation of its meaning, a retail sale of Ukraine. A concentration of incomprehensible, unlikeable, murky individuals on the country's main square" is, according to Avakov, a project of Russian secret agencies and "marginal parties which have gone into the past."
