"We spoke about it without disguise. Certainly, the operatives had to use force during Krasnov's detention, as he offered resistance. I remind that the detention took place in a forest between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. We did not know for sure whether he had any arms, whether he possessed other means that could harm the law enforcement officers. That's why they were forced to act tough," Tkachuk said.
