UPD: 12/14/2013 Pshonka said that 290 Berkut fighters took part in the acceleration of Euromaidan on November 30
On the night of November 30, 290 fighters of the Berkut special forces took part in the dispersal of Euromaidan, said Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka.
"Investigators of the Prosecutor General’s Office restored the chronology of the events preceding this situation, the number and deployment of employees of the" Golden Eagle "and the BB, as well as the movement of people on the Maidan, were clearly established," he said.

According to Pshonka, at about 4 o’clock in the morning, police officers warned people about the need to release Maidan in order to prepare him for the New Year holidays, however, the protesters did not react, and people who covered their faces with masks began to behave aggressively towards the employees of Berkut, who were from Kiev, Lugansk region, Chernihiv region and Crimea.
In the future, the aggressive behavior of these people resulted in a clash with the police, in the direction of which bottles, stones, metal pipes flew, and it was then that the Golden Eagle began to more actively go to the citizens, says the prosecutor general.
"Here, in fact, it began that, in our opinion, the Golden Eagle used more force than was necessary ... We know that to the extent the force should not be used and would not give the result that we now have, - that it was that night that became the causative agent for citizens and led to numerous disturbances in public order (later), "said Pshonka.
