Ukraine: Civilian protest brings the noise to Kiev's Verkhovna Rada

Several dozen protesters from throughout Ukraine made noise in front of the Verkhovna Rada in Kiev on Thursday in support of a 'loans law.' The group, who expect the law to improve their quality of life, follows from nine people declaring a hunger strike at the same spot two days earlier. The protesters are demanding the government support law 1558-1, a draft law on the restructuring of obligations in regards to foreign currency-denominated government loans. Oleksandr Ivlev, leader of the so-called 'Civilian Bank Control' protest movement, earlier denounced Kiev for failing to improve the quality of life for the citizens of the country. More protesters are planned in regards to the law.
