According to him, the police units were establishing public order as the actions of a judicial enforcement agent encountered resistance in the hotel.
"The police took measures to suppress public order disturbance. About 20 people have been detained, weapons have been found," Kryshchenko said.
Asked whether it really were the Aidar Battalion soldiers, Kryshchenko said that they "called themselves in different names, though, the police will check this information as well".
It was reported earlier that the Lybid hotel in downtown Kyiv was seized by armed men in military uniforms.
