Like yesterday, the government quarter is fenced off, while no metal detectors are seen anymore. Law enforcers perform occasional searches of handbags.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on February 19, one police officer has been injured and five people, including OUN Battalion chief Mykola Kokhanivsky, have been detained amid clashes in the center of Kyiv, according to Kyiv's police chief.

​Protesters who wanted to gather outside the Presidential Administration building on Bankova Street demand suspending trade with occupied areas in Donbas.

Kokhanivsky and other detainees were later released.
