KIEV, April 7. /TASS/. More than 2,500 police officers and Ukrainian National Guard servicemen have been mobilized to protect Kiev downtown government buildings, security sources said on Tuesday.
Deployment comes amid reports of around 700 protesters gathering outside the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament) demanding Prime Minister Yatsenyuk’s resignation.
Demonstrators have pitched around 20 tents there, one inscribed "Temporary investigative commission against the corrupt government".
A police statement said security forces had been sent "to protect government agencies - the presidential administration, parliament and cabinet buildings, adjacent areas and the city center."
