The rally of entrepreneurs takes place near the Cabinet of Ministers in Kyiv, where the meeting of U.S. State Secretary Antony Blinken and PM of Ukraine Denys Shmygal takes place. During the protest, leader of SaveFOP Serhiy Dorotych was detained as the proper video was published at Entrepreneurs of Ukraine/SaveFOP Facebook.
The members of the group report that one more activist of the rally was detained together with Dorotych. They were taken to Pechersky police department.
According to mass media, the reason for detention is that the leader of SaveFOP was too loud.
Serhiy Dorotych reported on Facebook that law enforcers compiled administrative protocol against him for violation of quarantine restrictions.
“Law enforcers detained activists of #SaveFOP movement and surrounded them! They compiled the protocol against me for violation of quarantine restrictions,’’ he wrote.
