KIEV, November 3 (Itar-Tass) — Chernobyl clean-up veterans participating in an action in front of Ukraine’s parliament have smashed down metal bars and broke through to the building, the UNIAN news agency reported.
Riot police have cordoned off central entrances to the parliament building. However, participants in the action have not attempted to get inside the building, it said. Police try to push them off.
On November 1, about 2,000 members of organisations uniting people who took part in the clean-up operation in Chernobyl in 1986, got together in front of the building, protesting against the lifting of social privileges to the veterans of the campaign to render harmless and eliminate the aftermaths of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
They twice tried to break through to the building, but were pushed off.
