  Seventy-nine people were injured during the events on Kyiv's Independence Square on November 30, Ukrainian Deputy Prosecutor General Anatoliy Pryshko said.

"Seventy-nine individuals who sustained injuries have been identified… Six students, four reporters, two foreigners and others. Ten people were hospitalized and two still remain in hospitals," Pryshko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday.

Seven policemen were injured as well, the deputy prosecutor general said.

Large-scale rallies in support of Ukraine's European integration on Kyiv's main square on November 30 escalated into clashes with the police.

Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
