Dramatic footage has emerged appearing to show an unidentified person being beaten by Ukrainian police

Allegedly filmed on December 1, some of the scenes are of a graphic nature.

Later some officers are seen gathered around the person appearing to offer some help.

The identity and current wellbeing of the person seen in the film is not yet known.
