Protesters' demands

Entrepreneurs oppose the introduction of quarantine curbs in Ukraine, affecting their businesses. In addition, they stand against the government's intention to tighten tax policy and introduce cash registers for most categories of small-scale entrepreneurs.

The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, on December 1, after numerous protest actions, passed a compromise draft law that postponed the introduction of cash registers for another year. However, protesters demand some more radical concessions on the part of authorities.
