On Monday, April 9, a crowd gathered in Kyiv near the Zelensky’s office in Pechersk district. An hour before the start of the rally, Zelensky’s team said that unknown people are planning to hold a paid rally with possible provocations near the office of the presidential candidate Zelensky.
Among the organizers of the rally was a district Deputy from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction.

This is reported by the Kyiv police communication department.
“During the event, two unknown persons approached a group of people who were holding placards in their hands, damaged the placards and started a brawl, provoking a fight. Offenders were promptly pushed aside by police officers, who keep order and then deliver the provokers to the police department,” the message says.
The police added that after the first check and explanations of the detainees will be given a legal assessment.
