The government paid people to escalate the protest into riots to take sympathy away from the protestors, and there is apparently also a far right group instigating violence etc. amongst the peaceful protestors.

Klitschko got sprayed with a fire extinguisher trying to calm protestors and asking for peaceful displays of protest.
