Protest actions calling for Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s resignation are being held in several Ukrainian cities, including Kharkov, Lvov, Dnepropetrovsk and Poltava.
According to local media, the rallies are taking place near city administrations. The protesters are holding flags of the nationalist Svoboda Party and banners calling for tribunal for Yatsenyuk and accusing him of being a puppet of oligarchs.
At the same time, near the parliamentary building in Kiev, where Yatsenyuk is planned to deliver a report on the government activity in 2015, a rally is taking place with the same claims of Yatsenyuk’s resignation.
Activists of the Svoboda Party, Common Peoples Party and the Right Sector are taking part in it.
Member of the Opposition Bloc Vadim Rabinovich has even taken handcuffs with him to the parliament. “The question is not about resignation of the government. If we decide on it, Yatsenyuk will flee abroad with what he has stolen. [Handcuffs] is what we should put on him; it will be the right approach and the correct assessment [of his report],” the MP noted.
