The 34-year-old police sergeant wore a balaclava and used a slingshot to shoot heavy screws at journalists, police and protesters, the Security Service said.

The police officer was “among other agent provocateurs who carried out a criminal scenario and were trying to disrupt the Verkhovna Rada meeting and destabilize the situation in the capital,” the Security Service said.

The clashes took place during a nationalist rally demanding a ban on communist ideology and recognition of soldiers of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) as veterans.
