 Kyiv paid tribute to national guards killed in explosion outside parliament year ago. PHOTOS

The Ukrainian capital saw commemoration events devoted to four National Guard fighters killed in a grenade blast outside the Verkhovna Rada Aug. 31, 2015.

As reported by Censor.NET citing UNIAN, a memorial service was held in the St. Michael's Golden-Domed Cathedral.

"It is unacceptable that law enforcers get killed in a peaceful environment. No one has the right to insult a police officer - a state person, a citizen of Ukraine. They safeguard peace inside the state and comfort of the nation," Yurii Allerov, National Guard commander, said during the service.

People's Front MP Andrii Teteruk stressed "no one will escape punishment, neither those who kill our comrades in the east nor those who commit acts of terrorism."

As previously reported, on Aug. 31, 2015, the Verkhovna Rada was considering the constitutional amendments in terms of decentralization (bill No. 2217a). A rally gathered outside the parliament, protesting against granting a special status to the occupied Donbas. One of the activists threw a grenade at National Guard fighters securing the area near the building. As a result, four people died and dozens received injuries.
