"When Ukraine is actually at war with Russia, such mass actions near the Verkhovna Rada pose risks, including provocations, in which people could be killed or seriously injured. I appeal to the leaders of political forces, who believe the changes to the Constitution are not necessary, to conduct all further rallies away from the Parliament and ensure proper security measures," Herashchenko commented.

Asked whether the action was planned, Herashchenko said: "I think such things are planned in advance."
