Police detained eight participants of the clash and took them to a police station.

Recall, the participants of the rally in front of the parliament demand changing the election system in Ukraine, in particular, adopting a proportional system with open party lists, creation of an anti-corruption court, and abolition of parliamentary immunity.

The deputies agreed on Thursday to consider two of the three requirements. A bill on an anti-corruption court to satisfy all parties yet does not exist.
