Defence Minister of Ukraine Yuri Ekhanurov assures that the trade center under the Maydan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv will not suffer from carrying out the military parade on Independence Day involving the military equipment.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this during the graduation of students of the National Defence Academy of Ukraine.

“I am a builder. I poured  the concrete, which is now at the Maydan Nezalezhnosti. That is why it is out of the question to speak about some destructions”, explained Y. Ekhanurov.
