    Ukraine protests 2014: A video of a man dressed in nothing but socks and shoes in freezing weather being tormented by Berkut special forces, has embarrassed the Ukrainian government.

    This one-minute video apparently shot on Thursday and published by Ukrainian newspaper Ukrainska Pravda shows a detained Kiev protester stripped naked in 14 degree Fahrenheit weather (-10 centigrade) being hit, jeered and humiliated by officers.

    Uniformed officers slap the man and forced him to hold a tool while another takes photographs. As the man makes his way onto a bus, a balaclava-clad officer kicks him in the back of the leg.

    In a statement, the interior ministry apologized and said an investigation is underway, describing the incident as unacceptable.

    It comes as fighting between anti-government protesters and police in the capital Kiev reached a new intensity this week. Three protesters died and and more than 150 police were injured in clashes in recent days.
