Ukrainian riot police storm the Euromaidan barricades
Members of the riot police, “Berkut” and internal forces have seized control of part of the fence at Euromaidan, in Independence Square.
After several unsuccessful attempts to break through the metal barricades the riot police have managed to seize control over the barricade. After taking control of the barricades internal security forces along with Interior Ministry staff and people in civilian clothes took apart the structures built from wood and metal. After a prolonged confrontation at Instytutska street the opposing forces took up their position.
At the same time, other security forces broke throughout the Euro-square’s defences. They took control of some of the road.
Security forces from Kiev City Council dismantled barricades as far as the junction of Khreschatyk and Proriznoyu.
