The supporters of the on-going trade blockade with the separatists-held territories in Donbas demand the continuation of the blockade and adoption of the law on the occupied territories. The resolution was passed by the activists during their rally Feb. 20 near Verkhovna Rada, UNIAN reports Feb. 21.
The blockade supporters, mostly former and present servicemen of Ukraine army volunteer battalions, were invited by Premier Grojsman to the table of negotiations.
The volunteers put up their demands: the immediate release of POWs and the law banning trade with the rebel-held territories.
The volunteers noted in Facebook that Grojsman told them he cannot influence the majority of Poroshenko-led and Yatseniuk-led majority factions in the legislature, hence, the trade-banning law approval is beyond his reach.
