Ukrainian media reported that about 500 servicemen at a National Guard base outside Kiev demand their overdue military pay, as well as military fatigues and humane treatment. Before leaving the military unit, they locked up their commanding officers.
Markiyan Lubkovsky, counsellor to the head of the Security Service of Ukraine, said the service has little information about the developments. “I think it is necessary to speak with them and if their demands are fair, they must be met,” he said.
Earlier on Monday, the press service of the National Guard reported that National Guard conscripts, whose term of service has ended, gathered at a rally demanding demobilization.
