Scuffle During Protests Outside Rada

Interfax-Ukraine reports that a scuffle broke out earlier today as protesters attempted to break through a riot police cordon outside the Verkhovna Rada.

Around 500 protesters have gathered, Intefax-Ukraine reports.

The news agency reports that the protesters are calling for the government to refrain from increasing excise duties and other taxes in the new budget, with one placard reading: "Take money from offshore accounts, not from business." 

Intefax-Ukraine reoports that some of the participants are members of the Volya (freedom) party and also the "financial Maidan" group.
