Kiev Utility Workers Remove Opposition’s Tent Camp outside Ukrainian Parliament

Opposition’s Tent Camp outside Ukrainian Parliament
Public utility workers of Ukraine’s capital Kiev on Saturday completed demolishing a tent camp outside the parliament, erected by the opposition activists last October and raided by police earlier in the day.

"All tents have already been removed from Grushevsky St., and public utility workers are currently clearing the rubbish and take it out on garbage trucks. They also remove what is left of fences and barricades," the 112.Ukraine TV channel said in a report, TASS news agency reported.

In mid-October 2017, several political parties and public movements held nationwide protests outside the parliament in support of large-scale political reforms. The protesters demanded the adoption of laws on stripping MPs of immunity, setting up the anti-corruption court and amending the election legislation.

They also called for a law on impeaching the president. The demonstrators set up a tent camp on Grushevsky Street and also Mariinsky Park, vowing to stay there until their demands were met.
