The guard of the parliament is keeping journalists off the windows at the ground floor of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, at a request of correspondents and cameramen to explain their actions they answer: “With your attention and video filming you provoke participants of the protest action to get into the premises of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine”.

At the same time, at the first floor of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine TV camera operators have a possibility to record the events that take place near the parliament.

All doors to the Verkhovna Rada are closed.

The BYUT-Batkivshchyna lawmakers continue blocking the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada.

The plenary sitting has not started yet.
