Representatives of student organizations came to the Cabinet of Ministers demanding the return of their scholarship funds.

Several representatives of student organizations and political parties are holding flags of Batkivschyna, UDAR and Ruh (People's Movement Of Ukraine) parties near the Cabinet of Ministers building, reports Gazeta.ua.

They are holding banners "Students Against Azarov" and famous Babuhka saying "If my grandson does not receive his scholarship, I will sick the cat on Azarov".


The leaders of the protest say that "before the elections the scholarships were cut down in all universities. The Party of Regions with Azarov in the lead decided to do the same during the summer when the students cannot go to protests since they are mostly back home".



They say that Azarov's government has taken 400 UAH (50 USD) from every student with the total amount being around 100 million hryvnias (over 12 million dollars).
