KIEV, January 30, 21:51 /ITAR-TASS/. Protesters caused about one million hryvnias (an equivalent of about 125,000 US dollars) worth of damage to the building housing the Ministry for Agrarian Policy and Food in Kiev, the ministry’s press service said referring to Deputy Minister Alexander Sen.
“Protesters have left behind smashed windows, broken furniture, a lot of garbage and dirt. Now the ministry building is being cleaned. On the whole, losses from the seizure of the ministry by protesters are estimated at almost one million hryvnias,” the report said.
According to Alexander Sen, servers and software, needed for the payment of salaries and scholarships to ministry staffers, staffers and students of agrarian universities, had been damaged among other things.
Activists from the radical movement Spilna Sprava (Common Cause) stormed the building overnight to January 24. On January 29, an agreement to leave the building was reached in talks between representatives of protesters on Kiev’s Independence Square and Spilna Sprava.
