 Night was calm in protesters' camp in government quarter: law enforcers mounted new fence at Hrushevskoho Street. PHOTOS

The night in the protesters' tent camp near the Verkhovna Rada was calm without any incidents.

Cenosr.NET correspondent reported from the camp site.

Law enforcers continue guarding the perimeter of the parliament building in downtown Kyiv. Police blocked the crossing of Shovkovychna and Hrushevskoho Streets with a metal fence and two special vehicles. This resulted in circling the protesters' tent camp from all directions with fences and checkpoints. The new fence prevents the protesters from blocking the entrance to the Verkhovna Rada. Today, Oct. 20, a Government Q&A hour is scheduled in the parliament.

As reported, a protest with a request to hold a political reform in Ukraine is being held 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.
