Around 2,000 teachers from across Ukraine gathered in the center of Kiev on Tuesday to demand pay rises. The protesters gathered in front of the Cabinet of Ministers building, partly blocking traffic, and marched to the parliament (Verkhovna Rada). The participants also demanded increased social security payments and decried rising housing tariffs. At the Verkhovna Rada they joined a rally of Chernobyl victims, who were also demanding increased social security payments.
