FCO MINISTER FOR EUROPE DAVID LIDINGTON CONCERNED AT REPORTS OF VIOLENT DISRUPTION AT PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION IN THE UKRAINIAN CAPITAL.

30.11.13


Speaking today Britain's Foreign Minister David Lidington said:

I was very concerned to hear reports of police violence being used to break up a peaceful demonstration in Kyiv in the early hours of this morning. I am aware that further demonstrations are planned this weekend.

I urge the Ukrainian authorities to respect the right of peaceful protest and to investigate thoroughly why police violence was used today.

Note: Earlier this morning the AUGB tweeted Prime Minister David Cameron for UK government to condemn government sanctioned police violence against the peaceful protesters in Ukraine. Also this morning, the UK's Ambassador Ukraine tweeted: "Hugely disturbed this morning to see pictures of deplorable intimatory violence against peaceful euromaidan demo in Kyiv".
