Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka has said that criminal cases on the events that occurred near the Ukrainian House in Kyiv were opened objectively and added that the charges will be brought against particular individuals.

"The criminal cases were opened objectively... I think that in the near future charges will be brought against certain individuals," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Wednesday.

According to the prosecutor general, police officers are victims in these cases.

"There are already people involved in these criminal cases. Investigators have done a lot over a short period of time in order to identify the persons who committed crimes ... In future the investigators will decide on against whom these charges will be brought, and in what form," he added.

Mass protests started near the Ukrainian House in Kyiv after the Verkhovna Rada adopted the law on principles of state language policy on July 3. Scuffles with the use of tear gas were reported there several times. Fifteen law enforcers were injured in the scuffles. Five criminal cases were opened.
