Protesters try to enter Ukrainian Health Ministry
KYIV. Feb 18 (Interfax) - Protesters have tried to enter the building of the Ukrainian Health Ministry in central Kyiv, but ministry security prevented them from doing that, a ministry official told Interfax on Tuesday.
A group of protesters came to the Health Ministry building, broke the fence, and hurled stones at the ministry's windows, breaking them. They also tried to get inside the building, but were unable to do so.
Many ministry officials have now left the central building of the ministry. One of them was injured by a stone hurled by a protester.
The Health Ministry building is in Mariyinsky Park, not far from the parliament building.
