December 16, in front of the red building University. Shevchenko burned foreign currency. According to the staff, a group of young people with placards on fire a few dollars and euro banknotes. About this in his blog, writes Sergei Lyamets.
Flash mob called "Dolar slept, slept vro, slept ruble — Zahist Ukraїnu."
Not clear to the end goal of the flash mob. It is clear that Ukraine is so dollarized that the dollar may be considered a second national currency. Euros, by the way, this applies to a lesser degree.
Officially, the flash mob was to be held on the eve of the summit of "Ukraine — EU" and "Ukraine — EEC." It is unlikely that he caused the collapse of a free trade area with the EU, but the coincidence interesting.
