The clashes occurred between the police and participants of the entrepreneurs' rally #SaveFOP in downtown Kyiv, on Maidan Nezalezhnosti as correspondent of Pershiy Nezalezhniy reported.
According to the correspondent, the situation at the place of protest is intense. In the morning, dozens of representatives of small and medium businesses gathered for a symbolic rally “burial of micro business” and brought three coffins. It is the symbol that the sellers of household appliances, druggists, and jewelers suffered due to the fiscalization.
The column tried to move from Maidan to the President’s Office at Bankova Street; however, the police blocked their way. Then, the clashes occurred. Later, the column of the entrepreneurs proceeded along Khreshchatyk, where the scuffles with the police continued. Currently, the rally continues and the column of the protesters heads to the President’s Office.
The entrepreneurs demand from the MPs to adopt the draft laws #3853-1(2), 3993 that provide the use of the simplified system of taxation, bookkeeping, and accounting, without primary documentation, as well as cancelation of the use of cash registers. The rally continues.
From time to time, the law enforcers seize funeral wreaths. Besides, they seized one of the coffins and one of the activists followed the law enforcers up to their bus and shouted “Give me my coffin”. Here we have the video:
Currently, Khreshchatyk Street is blocked for the cars.
