Ukrainian protesters demonstrated outside the US embassy in Kiev, Wednesday [June 17]., demanding that US soldiers leave Ukraine and stop interfering in the domestic affairs of the country.

Protesters gathered outside the US embassy waving Ukrainian flags and chanting “Yankee go home,” “Ukraine for Ukrainians” and “US soldiers out of Ukraine.”

Several rallies uniting over 3,000 people joined together outside Kiev’s Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament), Tuesday [June 16]. The representative of trade unions, activists of the ‘Financial Maidan’ organisation and anti-Yatsenyuk protesters were present.

Speaking at the rally, Sergei Kaplin, a member of the Ukrainian Parliament and representative of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. His speech was listened to by other protesters, which could be seen holding banners reading “Stop Yatsenyuk! Government politics is the genocide of Ukrainians!”
