The Batkivschyna Party supports the representatives of the public who staged a rally on the European Square to collect signatures for a referendum on dissolving the Verkhovna Rada and impeaching the president, the party's press service reported. "We have responded to their invitation and helped them to overcome the resistance of law-enforcement structures in organizing the event. Our MPs participated in the rally and backed the demands of the protesters," the report reads.

"In future, when entrepreneurs and other citizens will stage protests, BYT-Batkivschyna will provide them with all possible organizational support," the press service said.
