Verkhovna Rada Deputy Speaker Mykola Tomenko, representing the opposition Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko-Fatherland (BYuT), has denied any involvement of this political force in Tuesday's protests of veterans of Afghanistan war and cleaners of the Chornobyl accident.

As reported, members of the ruling Party of Regions accused BYuT of organizing provocations nearby the parliament with the protesters making an attempt to assault the Verkhovna Rada and clashing with special police force.

"Any political party nothing to do with yesterday's protests, they were organized by the organizations of the Afghan war veterans and Chornobyl cleaners. If the government thinks it is someone who intentionally tries to do it, so the authorities underestimate social protest moods that are in Ukraine," Tomenko emphasized, UKRINFORM reported.

"If the government does not change its attitude to people, trying to push through the laws like the law on the abolition of social benefits, such protests will continue," the vice speaker said.

As previously reported, nearly 2,000 representatives of organizations of Afghanistan war veterans and cleaners of Chornobyl NPP accident were protesting at the Ukrainian parliament Tuesday over the plans of the authorities to limit their social benefits.

Later the sides agreed to postpone the adoption of the law as a whole until it is agreed with public organizations that protect the rights of Afghanistan war veterans, Chornobyl cleaners and other groups.

However, the protesters adopted a resolution saying that if their requirements are not fulfilled, they are ready to begin an indefinite protest to demand parliament dissolution.

In this regard, chairman of the Center for Applied Political Studies "Penta" Volodymyr Fesenko said that under current conditions this requirement "does not meet the legal constitutional realities". According to him, in the 1996 Constitution, which was restored in Ukraine last year, dissolution of parliament is not envisaged.
