UNIAN reports that there were around 500 protesters at the Car Rally in Protest around Ukraine. The rally, as reported, began at the same time in the West and East of the country with cars setting out from Lviv and Luhansk under the banner “Take Ukraine away from the Oligarchs, return it to its citizens!”
They called for the Constitution to be defended, a stop to economic repression and social experiments dressed up as reform, and for conditions to be created for the development of private enterprise and the economy of Ukraine.
