Protesters in Ukraine - level 1

Protesters in Ukraine - level 1

09-12-2013 06:00

The Ukraine wants to work with the EU. It is a plan, but the President of Ukraine changes this plan. He doesn’t want to work with the EU. He wants to work with Russia.

People are shocked. They don’t like this. They are angry and they start to protest. The Ukrainian opposition leads the protest. It is not a nice protest. There are 350,000 people. They are aggressive. They throw rocks at the police.

Police fight with the protesters. The police win. The opposition is not happy. There can be more problems in the future.

Difficult words: angry (when you are not nice at other people), opposition (group of people who don’t like the president), aggressive (they are angry and attack other people).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
