Mitrov says he was betrayed by police officers who beat him on the head on Maidan Nezalezhnosti. But on the other hand, he was betrayed by the opposition politicians who failed to warn and protect him, and then regroup and formulate a simple, clear and coherent plan.

“They abandoned us,” he complains. 

Other protesters who spoke to the Kyiv Post said the political opposition removed its sound equipment just hours before the police attacked the crowd, suggesting that they knew what was coming, got their people out of harm’s way and left everyone else at the mercy of the police.
