KIEV, August 31 /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko will address the Ukrainian nation on Monday following Rada clashes, presidential spokesman Svyatoslav Tsegolko said.
"The Ukrainian president will make a TV address to the nation today following the events in Verkhovna Rada and outside the Rada building," Tsegolko wrote in Twitter on Monday.
The Ukrainian deputies adopted amendments to Ukraine’s constitution in part of decentralization of power in Ukraine earlier on Monday. By that time, about 3,000 people opposed to the amendments had set up pickets outside parliament. After that, someone from the crowd threw a combat grenade at the police cordon surrounding Verkhovna Rada.
About 100 law enforcers were injured during the riots, and several policemen were killed according to some reports.
The protest rally is now over. However, the Right Sector radical movement /banned in Russia/ is gathering supporters for new protest rallies to be organized outside the Rada building.
