Law-enforcement agencies get ready to provoked aggression between representatives of different political camps in Kyiv since today.
Deputy Interior Minister Victor Suslov disclosed this in an interview to “Komsomolskaya Pravda v Ukrayine” daily of 10 April 2007.
“I think, the possibility of provoked aggression will abruptly rise since 10 April”, V.Suslov said, adding this due to the fact that on Wednesday, 11 April, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine will begin considering the constitutionality of the President’s decree on dissolving VR.
“We have information that some extremist political forces plan to provoke scuffles, in order to disrupt the court sitting and to spur the President to introducing a state of emergency before the court announces its verdict. We expect for serious provocations”, V.Suslov said.
According to him, the Interior Ministry has already organized a strengthened guarding in the center of Kyiv.
On demand of the leadership of the government, the Verkhovna Rada, and the Prosecutor’s General Office, the police also strengthened guarding these state power bodies’ buildings. In particular, the Verkhovna Rada is guarded by nearly a thousand of policemen.
V.Suslov also confirmed that Berkut special subdivision employees were brought to Kyiv from other regions.
“These are not rumors. These people are really in Kyiv at present, but they are in reserve so far. We supervise the situation with the Kyiv garrison forces”, the deputy Interior Minister said.
