Deja vu on a national scale: in Kiev there is a new Maidan

Events in the center of the Ukrainian capital continue to evolve. Near the presidential administration Petro Poroshenko on the corner of Bankova and Instytutska streets exposed a police cordon, to the center of the city shrinks and the nationalists. What is happening in Kiev events such as the riots in 2013, which led to the coup and overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych.


One of the leaders of the protest, Deputy of the Ukrainian Parliament semen Semenchenko, openly calls for the overthrow of the country’s leader Petro Poroshenko and does not mince words.


“Poroshenko this music, the beast, will listen if he reaches Rostov. Because they portrayed themselves as patriots, they do not care about the law at all… These idiots repeat the mistake of the ostrich was one ostrich, now this rascal Poroshenko is doing,” said Semenchenko during a speech to colleagues.


Everywhere there are confrontations and radical nationalists. The latter used smoke bombs and attempted to fight off police detained radicals. Have already opened several criminal cases related to attacks on police officers.


The level of confidence in Poroshenko in Ukraine has reached record-low numbers. He is criticized even by former colleagues, including former Governor of the Odessa region Mikhail Saakashvili.


“Ukraine has very good people, people have a very good memory, he is a very intelligent people, he remembers these things, and confidence in the President falling. Similarly, falling confidence, when he says one international partner, and after that nothing happens,” – said Saakashvili.


During the reign of Peter Poroshenko in Ukraine, there was little change, which the country could be proud of. The increase in utility bills, the ongoing civil war and foreign debt of 60 billion dollars – all this has reduced the level of trust of Ukrainian citizens to their leader.


However, Poroshenko himself is not too worried about it, judging by his public activity. It is as if nothing had happened meets with members of the families of the Heavenly hundred, and it requires the deputies to adopt the law on absentee conviction of President Yanukovych. The obvious Parallels with the situation three years ago and don’t seem troubled by the Ukrainian leader.
