KIEV, June 17. /TASS/. Several dozen Ukrainians, who protest against the activities of the Ukrainian authorities, have brought a two-meter makeshift lavatory bowl to the building of the Ukrainian Rada on Wednesday to demonstrate where the anti-corruption reform goes to, TASS reported from the scene.

The protesters, wearing face masks featuring ex-Prosecutors General Vitaly Yarema, Oleg Makhnitsky and Acting Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, were turning over "investigation files" of criminal cases opened against former corrupt politicians, to a figure, which represented President Petro Poroshenko, who had been "washing the files away" into the lavatory bowl.

"The aim of the act is to show what might happen if the anti-corruption Prosecutor’s office is subordinated to the Prosecutor General," the protesters said. 

The makeshift lavatory bowl did not stay long near the Rada building. It was dismantled and taken away.
