KIEV, August 31. /TASS/. The authorities of the Ukrainian capital on their website have asked residents of Kiev and foreigners to refrain from visiting the center of the city in connection with the riots.
"The Pechersk district administration warns of the danger in the area near near Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada in connection with mass events held there. The riots were caused by the clashes between militants of the Right Sector extremist organization and a number of ultra-right organizations and law enforcers. Voting has held earlier on Monday in the Verkhovna Rada on the draft amendments to Ukraine’s Constitution. Drivers are asked to refrain from rides to the center of the city of Kiev, namely the following the streets: Grushevsky, Shelkovichnaya, Bankovaya, Institutskaya and the adjacent streets and sidestreets," the report says.
About 100 people were wounded in the clashes and the grenade explosion outside the building of the Ukrainian parliament. More than 3,000 opponents of the constitutional amendments from various regions of the country picketed the parliament building earlier on Monday.
Following the incident, the Right Sector extremist group urged its supporters to gather in central Kiev. Radicals threaten to respond to the actions of the authorities. The activities of the Right Sector are banned in Russia.
