Censor.NET reports citing Petro Poroshenko Bloc MP Mustafa Nayyem on Facebook.
"Good morning. The entire block is circled with shields. Constitution Square is accessible only through metal sensors. The parliamentary building is circled by two rows of National Guard and police," the MP wrote and posted images from the government block in downtown Kyiv.
As reported, a protest with a request to hold a political reform in Ukraine is scheduled for Oct. 17 at Verkhovna Rada building in Kyiv. Organizers of the protest say the key demands are to change the system of election in Ukraine, including a shift to proportional election system with open candidates list, restriction of political advertising on TV, creation of anti-corruption court, and restriction of parliamentary immunity.
Former Odesa governor Mikheil Saakashvili said that if the MPs do not fulfill the protesters' demands on Oct. 17, some of them might stay at the Rada building for indefinite protest. SBU reported earlier it had prevented a possible provocation during Oct. 17 mass events in Kyiv.
