In the Ukrainian capital, in front of the building of the Verkhovna Rada, clashes broke out between protesters from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, who demand a recalculation of pensions, and representatives of the police.

The protesters insist on negotiations with the speaker of the Rada, Dmitry Razumkov. They gave him 30 minutes to go out to them. The veterans of the Ministry of Internal Affairs did not specify what they would do if the official did not fulfill their demands.

As follows from the broadcast of the Ukraine 24 TV channel, the demonstrators are trying to break through the police cordon guarding the entrance to the parliament. They have already taken away the metal fence from the police. Both the police and the protesters stood in the link.

Recall that the protesters demanded that their pensions be recalculated in accordance with the law on the National Police of Ukraine, which provides employees of the department with more favorable conditions for calculating pensions compared to the time when they were police officers. Pensioners of the Ministry of Internal Affairs have repeatedly complained that after the reform of the system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, their pension coverage remained at the same level, "because both former police officers and current police officers catch criminals on equal terms, and their pensions are different."

Note that before it became known that the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov handed in his resignation.
