Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Kiev, acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov announced that the Berkut police units had been disbanded. All police officers would be investigated and those responsible for the deaths of anti-government protesters "would be punished". The Berkut units reportedly had 4,000-5,000 members stationed across Ukraine.

The Berkut in Crimea, have found employ with the new authority. Berkut [disbanded riot police] headquarters in Simferopol are protected by local self-defense militia.

Even our agent in Kyiv, Hennadii Morkal, complained again about the Berkut in Crimea. Calls the group "well trained insurgents."   :-)
