Ukrainian politician in a bin – level 2

22-09-2014 15:00

An angry mob threw a Ukrainian member of parliament into a rubbish bin outside the parliament in Kiev.

People held the man down, poured water on him, hit him and threw tyres on him. The reason behind the attack is unknown. However, the politician became unpopular when he restricted anti-government protests in January.

Difficult words: mob (violent crowd of people), tyre (rubber which is around a vehicle’s wheel), restrict (to limit something).

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

Which politician would you like to throw away?
