Protest in Ukraine – level 1

05-03-2018 07:00

People protest in Ukraine. They set up a camp outside the Ukrainian parliament.

The protesters want President Petro Poroshenko to step down. They want Mikheil Saakashvili as their leader. Saakashvili is in exile. The protesters also want an anti-corruption court.

Police come to the camp. The protesters and the police fight. The police arrest more than 100 people.

Difficult words: step down (stop working in a job), in exile (in another country for safety), anti-corruption court (a court or an institution that finds and bad politicians).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
