On Sunday, citizens dissatisfied with the policy of the Ukrainian government gathered for a motorcade and a demonstration in front of the residence of President Vladimir Zelensky near Kiev.
The protesters gathered in the parking lot of a supermarket on Sunday evening and first drove in a column to the official residence of the president. There they chanted critical chants and set Bengalos and smoke bombs on fire. At the end of the action, the demonstrators sang the Ukrainian national anthem.
Police secured the presidential residence, and the National Guard provided support in the further course.
In the morning, Ukrainians living in the British capital demonstrated in front of a house that, according to information from the Pandora Papers, should belong to the Ukrainian President. The protesters called on Zelensky to declare the property and to allow the money to flow into the Ukrainian state budget.
On October 3rd, an international consortium of investigative journalists published explosive documents from 14 financial service providers operating in tax havens with revealing information about the financial conduct of hundreds of politicians and other celebrities from around the world. The name of the Ukrainian president also appears in the so-called Pandora Papers. Zelensky and his closest circle are said to have benefited from a network of mailbox companies and thereby bought expensive real estate in London.
