[Video] Protestors Spray V.Klitschko With Fire Extinguisher
KIEV, UKRAINE –
Former WBC heavyweight champion and now Opposition Leader Vitali Klitschko‘s new role in politics has been a busy one.
Thousands of members of the opposition party assembled in Independence Square in Kiev to denounce a new law that strictly curbs protests. The new laws allow the authorities to jail those who blockade public buildings for up to five years and permit the arrest of protesters who wear masks or helmets. Other provisions ban the dissemination of “slander” on the Internet.
When the crowd became unruly, Klitschko attempted to address them over a megaphone to calm them down but instead was sprayed with a fire exintinguisher.
