The action was organized by representatives of Automaidan, socio-political movement that began in Ukraine within the Euromaidan. The activists organized a theatrical performance near the Ministry of Internal Affairs building, where they put the pot and started preparing ukha, a fish soup. "Avakov eats ukha" in Ukrainian (Avakov Ukhu Yiv) is consonant with “Avakov goes f*cking berserk”.
"Chiefs of Interior ministry, who ordered to put the activists of Automaidan to the jails, are still held in the office, and some of them are even upgraded. How so?" - claim the protesters. Tose, who had been working for Yanukovych, against whom the Maidan was held, were not charged. They stay in the office.
