Vitali Klitschko is from Ukraine. He wants to be the Ukrainian president. He is pro-Ukrainian. He does not want Ukraine to break into more countries.

He speaks to people in Kharkiv. Pro-Russian people listen to him, too. These people start to throw eggs at Klitschko. He continues with his speech. He has an umbrella for protection.

Difficult words: continue (not to stop), speech (speaking), may (we don’t know if it will happen or not).
