The nationalists seized the building of the Parkovy exhibition center in the downtown of Kiev where the so-called helicopter pad of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich is located, the National Corps party, created on the basis of the Azov National Battalion, against which criminal proceedings are opened in the Russian Federation, stated.
According to the political forces, the representatives of the "National Corps", the extremist movement Right Sector, banned in Russia, and the nationalist Freedom Party demanded the nationalization of the Yanukovich helicopter landing site.
"Today we, the nationalist forces, people who gained independence with our own blood, take this building under control, we demand immediately to stop the "indefinite status "of this structure and return it to state ownership," says a statement of the "National Corps" on Facebook on Monday.
Nationalists also demand to hold an open competition for the designated purpose of the facility and an independent and open assessment of the entire complex, including the cost of land.
According to them, at the moment this building still brings income to representatives of the former authorities.
