Traffic police in Kiev, Ukraine have returned to the streets to perform their duties for the first time since the latest violence.

They are still concerned for their safety as many citizens are angry at officers and blame them for the death of protesters in Independence Square.

In order to protect policemen, members of a citizen group who call themselves Auto Watch joined their patrol.

The BBC's Abdujalil Abdurasulov spent a night with one of the teams.
