KHARKIV, December 24. /TASS/. Over 200 people gathered in downtown Kharkiv on Wednesday to demand Mayor Gennady Kernes' resignation.
Since Wednesday morning, activists of different public movements have made attempts to launch an assault on the Kharkiv City Council in order to penetrate into the building. But it is guarded by a cordon of police officers.
Members of the Kharkiv City Council intend to debate amendments to the budget for 2015. In addition, they are also planning to discuss measures to provide insulin-treated patients with diabetes, the reform of housing and utilities infrastructure, land matters and support for developing entrepreneurship.
Protesters said, “Some vital problems have not been discussed by the City Council commissions that run counter legislation.”
“Our main purpose is to attend the City Council session. We want to see into the matter linked to public utilities, Kharkivvodokanal public utility plant. But we are kept out of the building. We want to tell the public that Gennady Adolfofich seized power,” one of the organizers of the protest action, Dmytro Drobot, said.
