They walked towards the office of businessman Rinat Akhmetov for a brief rally. They shout slogans aimed at the National Guard and law enforcers who cordoned off the building. No clashes between the activists and the guards were observed.

Exactly two years ago, the Ukrainian Maydan protests entered a new, radical phase which involved violent clashes between the protests and police. Hundreds of activists were injured these days, and the first killings took place.
