2014-02-18. The murder of Vasiltsov and Veremiy on Velyka Zhytomyrska str.

In the evening of 18th February the “special operation” carried out by the Security Service of Ukraine with Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine (police) has began. It involved clearing and isolation of protesters (supporters of Euromaidan) in the central part of Kyiv. In this context one of the most strategically important places in the city center became the intersection of Velyka Zhytomyrska Street and Volodymyrska Street. Two civil people were killed there by “titushki” that evening.
