Over a 100 men from the protester camp on Maidan Nezalezhnosti, armed with clubs and wearing masks, moved outside the barricades on Feb. 11 to picket a court in Podil where a judge was deciding the fate of   two protesters who had been under house arrest.

The judge released the prisoners, but the police said the protesters smashed two police cars and punctured the tires and the gas tank of the paddy wagon outside the court. The police opened a criminal investigation, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
