Following the “viche” on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square), the bus picked up those who want to participate in the trade blockade of Donbas.
This was reported by people’s deputy Semen Semenchenko on his Facebook page.
“Kyivans supported the headquarters of blockade of the trade with occupants. The first bus with the volunteers departed for the blockade redoubt,” Semenchenko reported.
"Viche" is a general meeting of the citizens of a Kyivan Rus’ town or city that was called to discuss important matters facing the community. In terms of its legal authority the viche was a manifestation of popular rule.
Earlier it was reported that there was a rally in center of Kyiv on February 19. Protesters intended to set up tents to stay there. Participants of the rally, which began immediately after the viche at Independence Square on the issue of trade blockade of Donbas temporarily occupied territories, were planning to place tents on the corner of Instytutska and Bankova Streets.
