"Authorities are doing everything to raise tension in society. Negotiations were very difficult. We were close to pass Derevyanko bill that really exempts from responsibility all participants of peaceful demonstrations without any conditions. Unfortunately, pro-government deputies passed the bill that further increases the temperature in the society. It is the law that is not in keeping people’s interest. The President came to the Parliament to persuade and intimidate MPs and finally adopt it", Vitali Klitschko said.
He also noted that protests against the government would continue. "We remain in the same positions and will protect anyone who is fighting for their rights and liberties, who is now in jail and at hospital", UDAR leader said.
