In Kyiv, protesters brought an old police van to the square in front of the Parliament building. They lit flares and burned it down - as a symbol of the law enforcement system of Ukraine in the 1990s.

An act of self-immolation was also conducted during the protests in Kyiv. Yurii Liashenko, an entrepreneur from Nova Kakhovka, spoke out against Arsen Avakov because his family had previously been robbed by bandits and police.

Liashenko was not seriously injured. He is currently being treated by doctors.
