The Prosecutor General’s office will request the strictest punishment for all those who were inciting people to violence, organizing and leading them. This has been announced on the webpage of the Prosecutor General’s office.
“Organizers of the riots will be held responsible for every injured person, every broken window and every burnt car,” said Prosecutor General Pshonka. He has also stressed that the truce has been violated. “For the sake of personal political interests all the negotiated agreements have been broken; lives and peace of millions of Kyivites have been put in danger.”
Pshonka emphasized that the leaders of the opposition should take responsibility for everything happening right now in the center of Kyiv. “They were the ones who announced the march who has now turned into an armed stand-off.” He also said that by now he knows of some hundred people that have been injured. In addition, he said that he is now convinced that only the government is interested in the peaceful resolution of the protests.”
