KIEV, May 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Several thousand people have gathered for the May Day demonstration in the centre of Kiev. A march staged by the Justice bloc of left forces started from the Arsenalnaya metro station down Grushevskaya Street to the Verkhovna Rada building and Europe Square, where a public meeting will be held. The march’s promoters told ITAR-TASS “Ukrainian presidential candidates don’t take part” in it.
The public meeting participants will adopt a package of demands consisting of seven political and seven economic paragraphs to the parliament-appointed Ukraine’s interim President and Verkhovna Rada Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov and parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
