KIEV, June 24. /TASS/. A demonstration demanding that Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk step down from his post was held on Wednesday in Lviv, a city broadly viewed as the mainstay of right-wing political tendencies in the country and a major center of support for the Maidan campaign in Kiev at the end of 2013 and the first half of 2014.
About 200 people waving the national flags that were turned upside down marched through the city center towards the City Hall and the offices of the regional administration, Ukrainski Novini news agency said. Participants in the protest were carrying the posters that said 'Bring Porshenko To Account', 'Yatsenyuk Step Down' and 'Where Are Our Euro-Wages?'.
They demanded a slashing of the fees for communal and utility services and a meeting with government officials. However, no one went out of the City Hall or the regional administration headquarters to speak with them.
Trade unions are holding actions of protest in many Ukrainian cities including Kiev. Apart from cuts in utility fees, they demand the indexing of pensions and an upward revision of the officially established subsistence wage.
City officials, public associations and rank-and-file residents of Lviv, which is known for nationalistic moods, and gave ardent support to the forces that demanded a speedy signing of an Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU and organized violent protests in Kiev, which eventually brought to power the government of President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
No clashes with the police during the Tuesday march were reported.
