Ukraine protest: Hundreds demonstrate in Ukraine after court scraps anti-corruption laws

More than one thousand Ukrainians have protested in front of the constitutional court in Kyiv against a decision to invalidate certain anti-corruption measures.

Some activists threw smoke grenades into the building and threatened to invade the premises, while police did not intervene with the demonstrations.

Others held placards on Friday, reading "Corruption Court of Ukraine" and "Out with the pigs of the Constitutional Court".

On Wednesday, the country's Constitutional Court announced it had scrapped anti-corruption laws that had been in force for several years, judging them too severe.
