KIEV, August 31. /TASS/. The Right Sector, Ukraine’s ultranationalist radical organization, has called an urgent gathering for its supporters in downtown Kiev following Monday’s clashes between police and protesters against amendments to the Ukrainian Constitution.

"The blood of patriots has been spilt near the Verkhovna Rada [parliament]," the Right Sector said on its Facebook page.

"[President Petro] Poroshenko not only looks like [former president Viktor] Yanukovych but has also shown love for despotic methods against people," the Right Sector said.

Over 3,000 protesters against the Ukrainian Constitution amendments gathered at the Rada headquarters on Monday morning.

According to Ukrainian 112 TV channel, some 100 policemen were injured in clashes with protesters.

Ukrainian Interior Minister ARsen Avakov said some 30 protesters, including the one who threw a grenade at policemen, were detained.
