KIEV, April 13, 17:16 /ITAR-TASS/. The supporters and opponents of Ukraine’s federalization have clashed in Kharkov, eastern Ukraine. Local media reports that two people were hurt.

Hundreds of pro-Kiev supporters carrying Ukraine’s state symbols gathered outside a monument to Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko for a meeting in favor of Ukraine’s unity.

In the meantime, anti-Kiev protesters demanding Ukraine’s federalization gathered outside a monument to Vladimir Lenin on Freedom Square. Most of them are wearing the Ribbons of St. George, a symbol of victory over Nazism. They demand the creation of the “South-East Autonomy” and are categorically against the early presidential elections in Ukraine slated for May 25.
