A rally, held April 26 in Zaporozhye, ended with a mass brawl.

At noon, about 40 residents gathered in front of the exhibition hall “Kozak Palace”, holding up placards demanding a lustration of the current government to raise pensions, and not to cancel social benefits to the people.

A few minutes later, the protesters blocked the roadway.

As soon as it happened, the unsanctioned rally participants were attacked by militants of the ”Right Sector”, and a scuffle ensued

It is reported that several protesters were arrested, involved in the fight, who were taken to the police station.

Note that this is not the first such meeting in Zaporozhye.

In early April, several dozen local residents from the Kommunarovskiy District of Zaporozhye also blocked the road in protest against the increase of tariffs and the abolition of privileges.
