Kyiv Prosecutor Sergei Yuldashev is concerned that the Aidar Battalion could stage a military coup. Comments about this were posted by Olena Yakhno, spokeswoman of the Kyiv prosecution office, on her Facebook page.

“It is one thing when they are defending our country in the east. It is another thing when they go into towns and cities with weapons. In particular, in the capital city Kyiv. I believe it is an internal threat. It is agreed that they are unpredictable. They can even carry out a military coup”, the spokeswoman said.

Yakhno pointed out that such a statement was made by the Kyiv Prosecutor during a coordination statement of security forces. During that meeting it was said that the Aidar battalion fighters had captured the Kyiv helipad of Viktor Yanukovych, ex-President of Ukraine, demanding the appropriated property’s return to the state.

The capture of the Yanukovych helipad became known at the start of the week. Fighters of Aydar battalion demanded that the property be returned to the state.

Earlier it was reported that the Donbas Battalion had delivered an ultimatum to President Poroshenko. The Battalion declared: “Should a single city be surrendered, the President will fly off his chair, there will be a military coup and the soldiers will take power into their own hands.”
