President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy heard the report by Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov on the clash that took place on the Friday morning in Brovary, the Kyiv region.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal was also present at the meeting.
"What happened cannot even be called a clash. It was reminiscent of the 90s," the President said at the beginning of the conversation.
The Minister of Internal Affairs reported to the President that the conflict occurred between representatives of companies engaged in passenger transportation in Brovary. According to one version, it may be related to corrupt deals with tenders on the distribution of routes.
About a hundred people took part in the clash. One bus with armed men arrived from Vinnytsia, another group in three minibuses arrived from the capital.
"Kyiv carriers involved the so-called titushky, inviting them from the capital and the Vinnytsia region," Arsen Avakov noted.
According to the minister, the group from the Vinnytsia region involves employees of a security company.
"Currently, 20 people have been detained, three are in hospital with injuries of various severity," the minister said.
The interception plan has been announced to detain the organizers. Persons who sent armed people from Vinnytsia are also being identified.
The minister said that the police conducts coordination with the prosecutor's office and the court regarding the pre-trial restrictions of detainees.
Also, according to Arsen Avakov, personnel conclusions will be made regarding the Vinnytsia region.
"Why did they let such a group of people out, albeit with hunting weapons? They had to react. By the end of the day, I will put forward the administrative response," the minister said.
The President stressed that an investigation must be conducted to identify and punish the perpetrators. The government, for its part, must provide assistance to ordinary citizens affected by the clash.
"We need to find customers so that they are punished. Also, at the government level, we must understand how to help ordinary people whose property was damaged in this clash," Volodymyr Zelenskyy summed up.
