During a demonstration held at the Verkhovna Rada building, protesters clashed with law enforcers. The situation got grave when police tried to find out how Avtomaidan vehicles ended up at the Rada building.

As a result, protesters and police used tear gas against each other. Demonstrators were throwing smoke grenades into police officers, and they were throwing them back into the protester crowd.

Some time later the situation got stable, as activists left the police cordon. To settle the conflict, MP Oleh Petrenko came to calm down the warring sides.
