As reported by Censor.NET citing ZN.UA, Deputy Interior Minister of Ukraine Serhii Yarovyi said it at a meeting attended by representatives of the Interior Ministry, the prosecutor's office, the clergy, and former volunteer battalions that have turned into National Police and National Guard units.
"We'll not allow a drop of blood fall, but will use unpopular methods if needed," Yarovyi said.
The meeting decided to establish a coordinating council for protection of public security and order during the procession. It will consist of representatives of law enforcement agencies - the Interior Ministry, the police, the National Guard, the SBU, the prosecutor's office.
As previously reported, the so-called "sacred procession for peace" started in the east of the country from the Sviatohorsk Monastery on July 3, and in the west of the country from the Pochaiv Monastery on July 9. The participants in both processions will meet in Kyiv at St. Volodymyr Hill and walk together to the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra, where a ceremonial service will be held on July 27, the eve of the celebration of Christianization of Rus-Ukraine.
In turn, the Interior Ministry pledged to prevent provocations during the sacred procession of the Moscow Patriarchate in Kyiv on July 27.
