KIEV, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Around two dozen demonstrators protesting at the building of the Ukrainian Rada have attempted to break into the Rada building on Tuesday to demand the resignation of Rada-appointed Interior minister Arsen Avakov. Some of the protesters voiced demands to turn over control over the law enforcement bloc to First vice-premier Vitaliy Yarema.
Representatives of the Maidan self-defense who are guarding the Rada building rebuffed the assaulters, preventing them from going in.
Members of the Right Sector extremist group and Nastup (Offensive) radical group, who had earlier demanded Avakov's resignation, presumably were among the assaulters who attempted to break into the Rada building.
