"Maidan" protesters' beatings and detentions by the former special police force have got their assessment at the Council of Europe.
Such statement has been published by the appropriate Committee.
"There are documented cases of detainees' maltreatment, which were not justified by the situation. These cases may be regarded as tantamount to tortures" – says the report.
It provides the examples of excessive use of force cases by the police unit against the protesters.
Ukrainian government has been struggling for a year now to punish the former "Berkut" employees, who had been recognized guilty on multiple charges.Source: Interfax-Ukraine
