Ukrainian civil groups investigate recent violence

A number of civil groups in Ukraine are trying to investigate the recent violence separately from government prosecutors.

They say some evidence may be lost for ever in Kiev's Independence Square - the Maidan - if not collected quickly.

One such group, the Public Committee on Investigation and Prevention of Human Rights Violations, is gathering stories of people who were involved in the violence.

They say their job will not only help to reconstruct the events in Maidan but also lead to reconciliation.

The BBC's Abdujalil Abdurasulov met with two members of this group.
