Demonstrators Put Russian Flag on Crimean Supreme Soviet Building in Simferopol



Participants in a protest organised by pro-Russian Cossack organisations in Crimea put a Russian flag on the Supreme Soviet of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (VS ARK) building in Simferopol. As the flag pole for the Ukrainian and Crimean flags is on the rooftop, the demonstrators attached the Russian flag to the letters on the building’s façade. Protesters demand that the government ignore what they see as illegal resolutions by the Ukrainian junta. A group of protesters blocked the central entrance to the VS ARK building, so, lawmakers and secretariat workers had to leave it through side exits.
