A group of masked protesters have laid siege to the house of pro-Russian politician Mikhail Dobkin in Kharkiv, Ukraine.

The protest was allegedly organised by the Azov Battalion, an ultra-nationalist Ukraine group, which called on members to get rid of “accomplices to occupiers” and demanded Dobkin to “go and live in Moscow.”

Tensions are high after pro-Kyiv groups proposed to name a street after the Heavenly Hundred, those killed during the Maidan Revolution.

Dobkin put forward a counter argument calling for a street to be named after the Berkut officers), those allegedly behind the Maidan killings.

After police cleared demonstrators from Dobkin’s house they took their protest to Kharkiv city hall.
