Nine people, seven civilians and two policemen, died in this morning’s clashes between protesters and police, reports the press center of the Kyiv police. “One person was suffocated by the smoke. Three victims were found in the Officers House; two died of gunshot wounds and one died of injuries sustained in a road accident. One person succumbed to gunshot wounds while in the care of an ambulance. Two people died of heart attacks during the dispersal on Instytutska Street,” said the press center.

The press center also reports that two policemen have died of gunshot wounds: one in the ambulance, and another in the hospital.

According to Hromadske.TV journalist Anna Babinets, two of the three people found in the Officers House have been identified. One of them was carrying an ID identifying him as a Svoboda party deputy from Horodenka District Council (Ivano-Frankivsky region) named Sergiy Didych. He had  severe head injuries and a mutilated face.

The second had a driver’s license with the name Kishuk Volodymyr, born 1956, issued in Zaporizhya oblast. He died of a gunshot wound to the head.

The third victim has not been identified. He did not have an ID on him. He looks to be a man in his 30s or 40s. There are two gunshot wounds to his body, one in the stomach and one in the heart. One more known dead, according to MP Oles Donij, is Sergiy Shapoval from Kyiv.
