Protesters in Ukraine - level 2
The Ukrainian president made a surprising decision. He stopped the cooperation with the EU in favor of Russia.
This decision was so shocking that 350,000 people protested in the Ukrainian capital city. The protesters were led by the Ukrainian opposition, and they were very aggressive. They threw rocks at the riot police which were fighting the protesters. One man was attacked and beaten by three officers and he wasn’t even defending himself.
The riot police broke up the demonstration, but the opposition said that this will not be the end.
Difficult words: in favor (Ukraine will cooperate with Russia instead of the EU), riot police (police which fights protesters), break up (win).
