While Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko was meeting with families of Heavenly Hundred Heroes, the ATO veterans and activists protesting against Russian business were gathering in the center of Kyiv. 

Police and National Guard hindered the rally in order to prevent mass pogroms, but activists managed to smash windows of Alpha-Bank building. Then they attacked Sberbank of Russia building, although it was cordoned off by law enforcement officers.

Protesters were "asking" the SCM company, owned by Donetsk oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, to get out chanting "East and West together" and "Revolution", reports.

In the afternoon, law enforcement officers deployed in the center of Kyiv to monitor the situation around Russian enterprises.
