Several activists of the organization got into the parliament building and put up a poster with the inscription "Titushky’s commander Skoryk must be under arrest" from the balcony of the hall.

The leader of the Tradition and Order political movement, Bohdan Khodakovsky, explained that the event was part of the campaign he is carrying out with supporters.

"We demand to finally punish the functionaries of the Yanukovych regime, we held a rally in the Verkhovna Rada," he said.

As it was reported earlier a month ago law enforcers prevented attempts to "aggravate the situation" and spill blood at the end of the rally near Verkhovna Rada.

Knyazev said that law enforcers operated in Kyiv within the legal framework and will not take any radical action to disperse the tent camp.

"The legality of placing tents is considered primarily by the city administration, and we will try to find mutual understanding with the organizers of the tent camp.

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko commented on the rally near the Verkhovna Rada saying he treated rallies with understanding and respected their participants. Poroshenko added that ensuring order is an important task for law enforcers and organizers of protests.
