Armoured carriers in Kiev streets (video)
The Verkhova Rda was supposed to meet in Kiev on February 18. However, a few thousand oppositionists approached the building in the morning. Radicals assaulted the building which resulted in clashes with the riot police: tear gas and flash-bang grenades were used. MPs were blocked inside the building. The protesters did not demand anything – they only urged President Victor Yanukovich to appoint an early presidential election.
