The correspondent noted that the situation is becoming more tense.

It is known that today the “night of yellow vests” is happening for the first time. This protest is scheduled to take place until 22:00.

"Yellow vests" hold protest actions on Saturdays, since November 2018. At first they protested against the rise in prices and taxes, and later the action turned into an expression of discontent with the government’s policy, which, in their opinion, does not seek to solve the social welfare problems of ordinary citizens.
