Protest in Ukraine – level 2

05-03-2018 07:00

People are protesting outside the Ukrainian parliament in a camp, as they support the opposition leader Mikheil Saakashvili who is in exile.

They also demand that President Petro Poroshenko resign, and they want an anti-corruption court.

Police came to the camp on Saturday to investigate an earlier conflict, but the situation became worse when they came. People set tires on fire, the police arrested over 100 people and then began demolishing the camp with a tractor.

The National Police says that the policemen found several grenades and the makings of Molotov cocktails on the site.

Difficult words: support (like and want), demand (forcefully ask for something to happen), resign (stop working in a job).

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