Angry Ukrainians hit a man – level 2

10-07-2014 07:00

This news is from Ukraine. A town’s governor met with people. He thought that he was a good governor, but the people did not agree.

They told him that he was a liar and they wanted him to resign. They attacked him verbally and physically. He managed to leave the building, but outside he was cornered by more angry people.

Difficult words: governor (somebody like a mayor), resign (stop working), corner (surround someone and not let him leave).

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

Do people protest in your country?
