KIEV, April 23. /TASS/. Participants of an anti-corruption rally have blocked the ring road around Ukraine's Kiev, the press service of the city police said on Thursday.
"The traffic on the highway has been partially blocked. Police are trying to solve the situation and calm the aggressiveley minded citizens," the statement said. The protesters are citizens of the Kiev Region.
