KIEV, November 1 (Itar-Tass) —— Participants in the picket of protest have broken through the police cordon and come close to the parliament building. About 700 representatives from Chernobyl and Afghan veteran organisations try to break through the line of Berkut special unit members.
Guards have blocked the entrances to the building. The doors are closed with iron bars.
The work of the Supreme Rada is also blocked. Yulia Timoshenko's supporters have blocked the entrance to the rostrum. A poster with the words "Freedom for Yulia" hangs over the rostrum.
About 500 Chernobyl disaster liquidators, who participated in the NPP cleanup operation, have picketed the parliament building this Tuesday, protesting against the abolition of social benefits. They have arrived from various regions. Among the slogans on their posters are "Hands off the Chernobyl Law" and "Protect the Constitutional Rights". More and more people came to join the picket. The guard of the Supreme Rada is reinforced.
