It is stipulated in his statement published at the official website of the ministry.
The Ministry of Interior reports about 350 hospitalized policemen and military officers of the Ukrainian internal forces.
Seventy-four out of those received gunshot wounds. 10 law enforcement officers were killed, reports the Ministry.
Zakharchenko stressed that “police forces and the military of internal forces fulfilled their duty and gave their lives for the establishment of peace and calm in the Ukrainian society”.
The Ministry transfers the responsibility for civilians dying from gunshot wounds on to the “extremists”.
“I would like to point out that law enforcement officers did not use guns. During localization of riots police officers were equipped only with special devices shooting elastic bullets,” Zakharchenko claims.
“In my opinion, all responsibility for the events which have taken place should be put on these irresponsible politicians”, stressed acting minister who is claimed to be a minister by the official website.
Before that, the Ministry of Health confirmed 25 deaths in Kyiv.
