In Kiev, under the slogan “For the Impeachment” of Petro Poroshenko, another march of the supporters of Mikheil Saakashvili took place. Some thousands of people from different regions walked from Shevchenko park, on the Khreshchatyk and Institutskaya Street, to the square in front of the Verkhovna Rada.
Protesters bore a huge banner with the inscription “For the impeachment”, posters with inscriptions “people’s impeachment!”, “You gave yourself an offshore, but for us – holodomor, in the budget – surplus, but for the people – genocide!”, “Impeachment for the President!”, and so on.
The crowd also chanted “Gang, get out!”, “Glory to nation – death to enemies!”. On Institutskaya Street militants joined the march, they shouted “Avakov, the dog, we will hang him on a tree branch!”.
Although previously the deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Irina Gerashchenko was outraged at the fact that Saakashvili’s supporters during their marches use the song “Plyve Kacha” (they buried those who perished on Euromaidan), and this time they sang it when the march went on Institutskaya Street.
At the memorial of the Heavenly Hundred the march stopped for a moment of silence.
At the intersection with Bankova Street, opposite the police cordon blocking passage to the Presidential Administration protesters symbolically “threw Poroshenko’s promises into the bin of history”, i.e. they dropped on the pavement posters with his portrait and text including his unfulfilled promises, and then trampled on it with their feet. Some of the protesters walked on Poroshenko’s face with special pleasure.
