At least thirty people were injured as around hundred members of the nationalist Azov Battalion civil wing stormed a construction site in Kiev on Thursday, in an attempt to dismantle the base of a high-rise that they claim is illegal.
Footage from the scene shows Azov members scaling a wall to enter the construction site, followed by protesters tearing down a truck and setting tires on fire, as well as throwing objects at construction site security. Units of riot police were rushed to the scene to disperse the crowd.
According to residents of this district, a construction company has illegally begun to build on the site and, following short negotiations, the protesters started to clash with the developer.
