Miners are staging a protest outside the Ukrainian Parliament, reports a QHA correspondent.

Residents of Krivoy Rog, who came to the Parliament yesterday to protest rigged mayoral elections in their town, also promised to join the rally. It was reported earlier that members of the Samopomich faction refused to vote for the agenda until a fresh election in Krivoy Rog was approved. The faction’s members blocked the rostrum while amendments to the Constitution relating to the judiciary were being debated.

Later on, an initiative group of the protesters showed up near the Parliament.
