 Those who trashed Sberbank of Russia in downtown Kyiv to be held accountable, city police chief says

The police intend to bring to justice those involved in trashing Sberbank of Russia facility on Kyiv’s Lva Tolstoho Square last night.

As reported by Censor.NET, Kyiv police Chief Andrii Kryschenko told 112 Ukraine TV channel.

According to him, the law enforcers "almost coped" with the situation that developed in the Ukrainian capital on Monday.

"As we said, 6,000 law enforcers including members of the National Guard were involved during the day. The number of the law enforcement officers on the streets decreased as the protests ended, but we are still guarding sensitive facilities. As for the assessments, I believe that we have almost coped. No one is in custody as of now. The investigation is underway. I believe that we'll collect enough evidence, including videos, to be able to bring to justice those who trashed Sberbank of Russia," Kryschenko said.

Kyiv police chief also confirmed that the office on Velyka Vasylkivska Street, which was attacked with smoke bombs, indeed belonged to head of Ukrainian Choice Viktor Medvedchuk.
