Several dozens of activists in military uniform, who hold flags of Vilni Liudy (Free People) organization, have gathered near the court building. People's Front MP Andrii Levus is among them. Activists have blocked the road to the court building and are shouting "No revenge!" slogan. About four police buses and prison trucks are parked outside.

MP Levus is demanding to arrest Yefremov, for, he says, Yefremov's involvement in the creation of the "Luhansk People's Republic" and support of terrorists is obvious.
