Ukraine: Protesters block Rada entrance until MPs vote 'yes' on Law 1558-1

Protesters surrounded the Ukrainian parliament building, the Verkhovna Rada in Kiev, Thursday, making a chain and refusing to let the members of parliament leave until they voted yes to law 1558-1, a draft law on the restructuring of obligations in regards to foreign currency-denominated government loans. The 'Financial Maidan' made a human chain around the Verkhovna Rada building and blocked a crossroads between Grushevskogo and Shelkovichnaya streets, blowing on horns and banging drums, demanding that the MPs vote yes on law 1558-1. Protesters from the 'Financial Maidan' movement also brought out a mock coffin for the Speaker of Parliament Volodymyr Groisman.
