Poroshenko on rally outside Rada

Ukrainians have the right to peaceful demonstrations and publicize their demands to the power, Pres Poroshenko said, commenting on the rally outside the legislature in Kyiv.

 “I believe, peaceful demonstrations are an important tool of democracy and I treat their participants with respect,” Poroshenko said during a press conference on the heels of the talks with Malta’s president in Kyiv.

At the same time he stressed the need for law enforcers to ensure public order during the demonstrations and to forestall fist-fights and provocations. 

He said the rally indicates that his proposals to cancel the deputy immunity of lawmakers, set the anti-corruption court and enact a new election law were shared by the rally participants.
