Ukraine needs to restore the famous special police unit” Berkut “, disbanded after the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych. This was stated by the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Opposition Platform – For Life faction Ilya Kiva in his Telegram channel.
As Kiva noted, over time, “you begin to respect the guys from the Berkut special police unit even more”. According to the deputy, the time will come and monuments will be erected to them in Ukraine, and the names of the Berkut fighters will become examples of valor and courage. As Kiva wrote, the unit will be revived, and the younger generations of Ukrainian citizens will be brought up on the example of its fighters.
Recall that the Berkut special police unit, which performed functions similar to the Russian OMON, was disbanded in February 2014 year by the decision of Arsen Avakov, who then held the post of the authorized representative of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to control the activities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. Avakov then explained his decision by the “complete discrediting” of the special forces in front of the Ukrainian people.
