KIEV, November 21./TASS/. Ukrainian radical activists have stormed a Sberbank office (Ukrainian bank subsidiary of Sberbank of Russia) on Leo Tolstoy Square, in central Kiev.

They "smashed windows and counter windows, broke a door, and even tried to break open a cash dispenser," strana.ua online news portal reports. The press service of Kiev police said police are looking into the circumstances of the incident, and are assessing it in legal terms.

Earlier in the day, radical activists, including members of the Right Sector group, outlawed in Russia, and the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists set fire to a beauty parlor in Kiev, mistaking it for the office of Ukrainian Choice public movement.

Kiev marks on Monday the third anniversary of the start of mass riots that led to a coup in February 2014. Deep crisis embraced Ukraine at the end of 2013, when then-President Viktor Yanukovych suspended the signing of an association agreement with the European Union to study the deal more thoroughly. The move triggered mass riots that eventually led to a coup in February 2014. The coup claimed dozens of lives.

The central part of the city has been cordoned off by the police since Monday’s morning, mass rallies and marches are being held there.
