Pro-Russian Kharkiv residents block Berkut base
For several days on end pro-Russian locals have been blocking the exits of the base where Berkut riot police are stationed. About 50 persons guard the base non-stop. The locals say that they do not want the Berkut units to be disarmed and tried for sabotage. The officers of the now disbanded Berkut have allegedly refused to obey the orders of the interior minister, Arsen Avakov.
