KIEV, February 27. /TASS/. Several people have been injured when the police were dispersing the rally at the building of Ukraine’s National bank, an unnamed protester told TASS by phone on Friday.
"When the National Guard servicemen were dispersing the rally, many got clobbered, with broken arms and head injuries," he said. "Ambulances were taking the victims from the site."
Earlier, media reports said that police used riot batons to disperse a rally at the building of the National Bank of Ukraine while the protesters’ tents were pulled down with bulldozers, some of the protesters were injured.
"The police have brought down the tent where we were trying to hide from rain and have driven a bulldozer towards us," protesters told reporters. "A fight erupted between the activists and law enforcers. Several people were hurt - with visible blood and traumas."
The protesters have been demanding resignation of Ukraine’s National Bank Governor Valeria Gontareva and her first deputy Alexander Pisarchuk for several days.
On Tuesday the protesters said they would participate in an indefinite and round-the-clock action at the National Bank.
On February 19 and 23 related demonstrations organised by the Public Control of Banks public movement took place at the National Bank building.
On Wednesday, February 18, deceived investors were holding a protest action at the building of Ukrainian parliament, Verkhovna Rada, and even blocked the traffic on Institutskaya Street for some time.
On December 1, 2014 Kiev’s Pechersky district court bound prosecutors to launch a criminal case against Gontareva on charges referred to the National Bank's currency interventions in August 2014.
