KIEV, June 7. /TASS/. About a hundred activists have placed at least five tents in Kiev’s Maidan, or the Independence Square in the centre of the city, demanding the president and the government report about reforms in the country.
Posters say some of the activists have gone on a hunger strike. "I am on a hunger strike protesting against the authorities’ inaction," one of the posters says.
In general, the protesters demand that President Pyotr Poroshenko should appear before them to give an account of his work over the year of his presidency. They also want to see representatives of the government to tell them of what has been done in terms of promised reforms. However among the slogans are none that demand the change of the central authorities.
Utilities service tried to remove the tents but protesters got inside and refused to get out.
