Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman believes that at the rally outside the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday, besides people who seek changes, there were also those who try to disguise their thirst for power with beautiful slogans, an UNIAN correspondent reported from a government meeting on Wednesday.

Groysman said that he supported the need for changes in Ukraine, including idea to set up an Anti-Corruption Court and strip MPs of their parliamentary immunity from prosecution.

What happened yesterday has probably two components. On the one hand, there were the people there who came to express their absolutely deep conviction of the need for change, people who are ready to work hard to achieve these changes. And on the other hand, there are people who are not going to do anything at all. They are trying to disguise their thirst and struggle for power with beautiful slogans. Moreover, which is even worse, they are trying to destabilize the country with these slogans and weaken Ukraine at such a difficult time we are facing," he said at a government meeting.

Groysman stressed that he would always support those "who are ready with their hard work, not slogans, to do real business and come to real solutions."
