Special forces of the Ukrainian police, known as 'Berkut', gather in the grounds of Dynamo Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine, where violent protests have broken out. Brendan Hoffman/Getty Images Over the last two and half months, hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have protested the increasingly authoritarian direction of President Viktor Yanukovych's government. At the forefront of Ukrainians' objections to the government are a special police force known as the Berkut , or "Golden Eagle."

During the Euromaidan Protests, Yanukovych has deployed up to 5,000 members of the Berkut to assist in protest management, including the use of water cannons, tear gas, and rubber bullets. Rather than quelling the disturbances, the Berkut has fanned the flames, using increasingly brutal measures to fight protesters.

The Berkut are a special police force that has had a long history of brutality, abuse, torture, and other measures in service of whatever political regime is in control of Ukraine. The force was first formed in 1988 as part of the Soviet OMON (Special Purpose Police Unit), an elite riot police and paramilitary force.

Ukraine’s glamorous new Patrol Police is only the tip of the iceberg in Ukraine’s law-enforcement system reform. A vast majority of the National Police workers will be hired from ex-militia staff, including Berkut, the special unit infamously known for their violent pacification of the protests two years ago. The job interviews for National Police candidates are conducted by Attestation Commissions that include Maidan activists.

On December 24, Oleksandr Kravtsov, a Euromaidan activist and a member of one of the Attestation Commissions, posted on Facebook that five ex-Berkut members involved in the pacification of protests in 2013-2014 have now become new National Police members. This information sparked outrage in the media and society.

“I don’t understand how ex-Berkut members can be accepted to the National Police,” said Roman Sinitsyn, a volunteer and also a member of Attestation Commission commented on Facebook.  “Those who were smashing students against the Independence Monument in the night of 30 November [2013] and were breaking ribs and arms of young boys and girls that didn’t offer resistance. It all started from beating the students.”
