Chronology of events
UPD: 12/14/2013 Pshonka reported that 290 Berkut fighters took part in the dispersal of Euromaidan on November 30
On the night of November 30, 290 special forces soldiers of the Golden Eagle took part in the dispersal of Euromaidan, Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said.
"Investigators of the Prosecutor General’s Office restored the chronology of the events preceding this situation, the number and location of the Berkut and VV staff, as well as the movement of people on the Maidan, are clearly established," he said.
At the same time, journalists were shown a scheme for restoring events on the Euromaidan on November 30.
Commenting on the chronology of the events on the night of November 30, Pshonka noted that there were about 500 people on the Maidan at that time, of whom 30-40 were not installed masked people.
According to Pshonka, at about 4 am, police officers warned people about the need to release the Maidan to prepare it for the New Year holidays, but the protesters did not respond, and people who covered their faces with masks began to aggressively behave towards the employees of the Golden Eagle, who were from Kiev, Luhansk, Chernihiv and Crimea.
In the future, the aggressive behavior of these people resulted in a clash with the police, towards which bottles, stones, metal pipes flew, and it was then that the Berkut began to more actively go to the citizens, the prosecutor general says.
"Here, in fact, it began that, in our opinion, the Golden Eagle used more force than was necessary ... We know that to that extent, force should not have been applied and would not have yielded the result that we now have, - that exactly that night became the causative agent for citizens and led to numerous violations of public order (later), ”Pshonka noted.
