Police officers are always on duty for the protection of public order without firearms, including now in the center of Kyiv, press office of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine informs.

However, if allegations of using firearms by participants in mass actions are confirmed, law enforcement will have a reason to use firearm in accordance with the Article 15 (use of firearms) and the Article 151 (Guarantees of personal safety of armed policeman) of the Law of Ukraine “On the Militia”.

"The Interior Ministry appeals to residents and guests of the city with a request not to succumb to provocations and asks to refrain from visiting the Yevropeiska Square and Hrushevsky Street, since the probability of injury on part of violent participants in the riots remains high," the report says.
