“Only the states that are able to defend their markets by contemporary methods and create jobs have the chances to take a dignified place in this world,” he said.

Kiev police officials said about 10,000 people took part in the action. They carried the posters saying “Build Europe in Ukraine,” “Support to the Ukrainian government’s actions”, and “Bring European Standards to the National Economy.
