Chronology of events
UPD: 14/12/2013 Pshonka reported that in the dispersal of EuroMaidan on November 30 290 fighters of the Golden Eagle
On the night of November 30, 290 fighters of the special unit of Berkut took part in the dispersal of EuroMaidan, Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said.
"The investigators of the Prosecutor General's Office have restored the chronology of the events preceding this situation, the number and location of the Berkut and VV employees, and the movement of people on the Maidan have been clearly established," he said.
At the same time, journalists were shown a scheme for restoring events on EuroMaidan on November 30.
Commenting on the chronology of the events on the night of November 30, Pshonka noted that at that time there were about 500 people on the Maidan, of which 30-40 were unidentified people wearing masks.
According to Pshonka, at about 4 in the morning police officers warned people about the need to release Maidan to prepare him for the New Year holidays, but the protesters did not react, and the people who covered their faces with masks began to aggressively conduct towards the employees of the Golden Eagle who were from Kiev, Luhansk, Chernihiv and Crimea.
Later, the aggressive behavior of these people resulted in a clash with the police, in the direction of which flew bottles, stones, metal pipes, and it was then that the Berkut began to go more actively to citizens, the prosecutor general said.
"Here, in fact, it began that, in our opinion, the Berkut used more force than it needed ... We know that in so far as the force was not to be applied 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 violations of public order (later), "said Pshonka.

"The first results of the investigation give us the right to say that on the night of 29 to 30 November, in the office of the chief of the main police department of Kiev, Valery Kovsh, there were deputy chairman of the National Security and Defense Council Vladimir Sivkovich and head of the Kyiv city state administration Alexander Popov," the prosecutor general said.
"It was they, according to the investigation, being in the office of the head of the militia, who inclined him to take a decision on the use of force," Pshonka said.

Pshonka also said that the suspects in excess of power on November 30 will be dismissed on Maidan.
