In a number of Ukrainian cities, owners of foreign cars registered in the EU countries have blocked roads and demand the abolition of a number of rules regarding taxation in draft laws adopted by the Verkhovna Rada.
In particular, in the Lviv region “blahari” (as the population calls this category of car owners: from the word “blahi” - car numbers of EU countries) blocked the international route Lviv-Chop. The Moscow-Simferopol highway is also blocked in the Zaporozhye area.
The form of protest is simple and unpretentious - protesters endlessly go along the pedestrian crossing, preventing the passage of vehicles following these routes.
However, the fragmentation of Ukrainian society was not mentioned in vain. In social networks in Ukraine, calls for violent acts against “jailers” are heard more and more loudly.
Other Ukrainians become their initiators and distributors, who are forced to stand in traffic jams for hours because of protests by owners of cleared cars.
So far, there have been no violent conflicts, but experience shows that it’s worth, for example, “Ambulance” not to catch a patient because the road is blocked, or any other unforeseen incident will happen, and a peaceful protest can turn into a bloody one carnage.
So, as it happened on the Maidan, whose anniversary is celebrated today by the Kiev authorities.
