According to information sources in 'Ostrov', an urgent IM meeting was held last night in Kyiv, to which the former chief of internal military forces in Donetsk, General Vorobyov, was invited.
At the same time, according to MP Yuriy Pavlenko, a meeting of commanders of internal military forces and Kyiv Special Police Units is supposed to be held on Friday. The creation of a Kyiv territorial command center, to be headed by Donetsk's General Vorobyov, will be announced during this meeting. According to Yuri Pavlenko's comment for the 'Glavred' Internet portal, the forming of this command center is proceeding without the permission or knowledge of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) of Ukraine, and the respective Verkhovna Rada committee is unaware of these developments.
Pavlenko summarizes all of this as an 'illegal police coup in Kyiv'. According to the MP, 'there are no guarantees that tomorrow's head of TC won't replace unit commanders with Donetsk people to completely control situation in Kyiv.' Pavlenko believes that 'armed people commanded by a certain political party represent a certain danger, since we don't know what kind of orders General Vorobyov will be giving.' According to the MP's information, the order to urgently create the territorial command center in Kyiv was given to Interior Minister Bilokon by Victor Yanykovych. At the same time, during his stay in Donetsk on December 11, Yanukovych announced during a Ukraina Channel TV broadcast that 'it's not within my mandate to work with law-enforcement organs while I'm on leave.'
Additionally 'Ostrov' has discovered that a regional meeting of the Interior Affairs Administration was held today in Donetsk. The administration has refused to provide information about General Vorobyov, maintaining that "he is not a police general."
