"What happened in Dnipro is absolutely unacceptable. The provocation, which occurred there needs to be assessed in full… It is necessary to finish the investigation. It is necessary that all those found guilty were punished, it is necessary that every employee of the police and other services alkalized what happened and it is necessary to ensure that this will not happen again," Groysman said.
Groysman noted that any provocations, which took place during such a somber event as the commemorative celebration of the Victory Day are "morally unacceptable."
According to media reports, over 50 people were detained during celebrations across Ukraine on Tuesday, most of them in Kiev, over creating public disturbances and using communist-related symbols.
