KIEV, June 16. /TASS/. Ukraine’s trade unions continue their indefinite protest demanding a reduction in utilities tariffs, indexing pensions and increasing the living wage.
More than 1,500 representatives of Ukraine’s trade unions have gathered outside the country’s parliament building in the capital Kiev, a TASS correspondent reported from the scene.
Two more protests are held simultaneoulsy outside the parliament. Some 50 people took to the streets in protest at the Radical Party’s leader Oleh Lyashko, a member of the Verkhovna Rada.
Around a hundred activists of the so-called financial Maidan demand a reform of the country’s financial policies. The two groups of protesters also clashed with each other as they failed to share the square in front of the Rada.
The activists of the trade unions said they plan to organize several protests by this autumn that will end in an all-Ukrainian strike. "We will assert our rights. The parliament must work for people, rather than be a thief," one of the protesters said.
"They do not contact with us, they give nothing but promises through the TV," he said.
"We have brought here a crane with a slipknot as a symbol of how high tariffs for housing services kill us. Our demand is to cut down prices on the tariffs," the activists said.
