09.12.2013, 11:42

The Ukrainska Pravda news photographer Dmytro Larin was almost beaten by Berkut fighters, but he managed to escape and hide in a building nearby. This was reported by Ukrainska Pravda.

According to Larin, on Bankova Street there were about several thousand police officers, and Berkut fighters were beating everybody indiscriminately, be it journalists or activists. He was with a group of people who were being beaten and had he not escaped he would have suffered, too. The only thing he lost was his ID that was snatched from him. As he reported, it was instigators who encouraged young people to attack the police, and when they did the instigators themselves quickly dispersed.
