The police finds provocateurs among the Interior Ministry picketers
At the meeting under the Ministry of Internal Affairs on December 25, there was a group of young men who hid their faces behind masks.
They avoided photographers and remained largely unnoticed to the operators of TV channels, says the Interior Ministry.
"Similar young people were seen during the earlier provocations near the administrative buildings at the Independence Square (the Maidan). Due to such provocative actions, as the events have shown, ordinary citizens may suffer," noted the department.
The Interior Ministry warned people against possible provocations and asked to provide information about such persons.
In the night of December 25, a journalist Tatyana Chornovil was beaten up. In the morning, protesters picketed the Interior Ministry demanding the resignation of the Minister Vitaly Zakharchenko.
