Protesters in Ukraine's Lvov seize building of prosecutor's office
A rally in the city of Lvov, in western Ukraine, that demanded the resignation of the Kiev-appointed prosecutor has ended in a storm of the building of the local prosecutor's office, local media reported on Tuesday.
"Several dozen activists broke into the building, law enforcers were unable to stop them," the media reported. Activists tried to get an appointment at the office of the new prosecutor, Vladimir Gural, who was not in.
This is not the first protest action against the new prosecutor. Thus, civic activists foiled the ceremony of the presentation of the new prosecutor by the Kiev authorities. Activists accused the man of bribe-taking and office abuse.
