"When I realized that the situation had gone out of control, I immediately went to Hrushevskoho street where the brutal confrontation was developing. I took responsibility. I did everything to prevent such situation. But today the situation in the society is so tense that people cannot stand it out", Vitali Klitschko said.
He noted that in this situation there were only two choices: “either withdraw, what is wrong, or take responsibility, which I chose".
However, Klitschko stressed he is very concerned about the consequences of the events which are taking place. "We use every opportunity to avoid any bloodshed. I urged the heads of the police and riot police not to use weapons", the leader of UDAR pointed out.
