Unprecedented security precautions in downtown Kyiv

Police and National Guard has blocked all the streets leading to the government quarter in Kyiv, Ukrayinska Pravda reports late Oct. 16.

 “I have never seen such a massive blockade of the government quarter,” says journalist Tetyana Danylenko.

Security measures are due to the rally by Mikheil Saakashvili-led party announced for Oct. 17.

During the rally supported by lawmakers, public activists and representatives of political organizations Alternativa, Democratic Alliance, Chesno and others they will publicize their three demands: the creation of the independent anti-corruption court, cancellation of the deputy immunity against criminal prosecution and the enactment of a new election law.
