At the so-called self-defense points the protesters are getting shovel handles and other items that can be used to cause bodily harm.
As reported by the Ministry of the Interior, the information comes from the Members of Parliament of Ukraine.
Police warns that such actions are illegal and carry criminal liability if committed. Law enforcers will react to offenses according to the applicable law.
