Ukraine: Maidan old guard return to tear down campsite

August 9, 2014 at 19:55 GMT +00:00 · Published

Scores of people who took part in the anti-government rallies on Maidan that led to the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovych, returned to Independence Square on Saturday to aid authorities in the dismantling of the protest camp.

The activists, many of whom, are returning from fighting in east Ukraine, are reportedly against the 'new movement' of activists who remain camped out in tents on the square.

Fights between the two groups erupted, resulting in the arrest of one, while tents and barricades have been set ablaze.
