On these videos, a handful of men
dressed in special uniforms and clearly marked as policemen first
climb over the fence that surrounds the party office, and then are
seen breaking locks and crashing doors with sledgehammers. Some of
them clearly carry guns.

“In the corridor we have people
with machine guns, trying to break through into server rooms,” Ostap Semerak, a senior aide to Arseniy Yatseniuk, told the Kyiv
