(as reported by journalist Ivanna Kobernik on her Facebook page)
One of Berkut police officer’s wives, who works at a kindergarten, came to ask for an unpaid leave of absence from work today. The kindergarten director agreed but told her to state the reason for the unplanned vacation. The woman confessed that all Berkut officers were trying to send their families away from Kyiv, and that they had been ordered to do so. According to the journalist, that means that Berkut are scared and will therefore be getting more and more violent.
