On December 16, entrepreneurs rally at Maidan Nezalezhnosti square continues, the participants do not plan to disperse and say that they will stay "as long as thay have to." This was reported by the correspondent of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
The situation worsened after law enforcement officers removed protester's tents.
“We will be here for as long as we have to, because we need a victory. We are here for a simplified taxation, accounting and reporting system. The situation into which the government and the president have driven us requires an immediate solution. We must win. Literally now, law enforcement officers suddenly approached us and immediately removed those several tents that had been erected. Now they want to take our generator, which heats our water. For them, it seems to be a symbol of the Maidan. For some reason they are very afraid of the generator, ” protesters say.
Law enforcement officers at first stood and just watched the law and order. At some point, about 20 law enforcement officers grabbed the tents and carried everything in the direction of the police bus, after which they left.
As we reported earlier, on December 15, entrepreneurs gathered in Kyiv, next to the Ukrainian Parliament building; they protested against the lockdown and introduction of cash registers. The protesters set up their tents, and the police dispersed rally members with tear gas.
