Ministry of Internal Affairs massively removes videos of protestors beaten

18.12.2013, 13:46

The Ministry of Internal Affairs conducts mass removing from online video services of the videos of the pro-European rally beating on the eve of November 30 and at the time of provocations at Bankova Street on December 1, cesor.net informs. "The Ministry’s PR-department sweeps the social networks for the video clips showing the brutal beating of people", the media outlet informs, referring to the twitter of the press service of the Electoral Association "Batkivshchyna." During the last 24 hours, a lot of the videos of the beating of pro-European rally participants by "Berkut" fighters have been removed from video hosting services, especially Youtube. As the services inform, the video clips are either removed or blocked based on the claim of “copyright owner” – the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The YouTube video hosting removed the video by “Telekrytyka” named “Berkut to journalists: "We will show you freedom of speech, bitch!" This video was removed because of the copyright claim from the public relations department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. The Telekrytyka’s video digest presented video evidence of the crimes committed by law enforcers against mass media on December 1 at Bankova Street.
