First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksander Korniyenko advised journalists to come to the parliament earlier on December 1 due to the possible blocking of the passages to the parliament building. He told reporters about it on November 30 on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada, as Interfax-Ukraine reported.

"I would advise you to come earlier, because due to the coup the passages could simply have been blocked…" - said Kornienko.

According to Korniyenko, in the regions they offered UAH 1,000 (about $ 36) to anyone who is willing to come to Kyiv and take part in protest rallys.

Kornienko stressed that allegations of a possible coup should be checked by the competent authorities.

"These assertions should be taken seriously, they are being checked. […] For our part, we are simply trolling the opposition, who gather here all the time and cannot always articulate what for they did, ” said the first deputy speaker of parliament.

He also said that five or six rallies are taking place under the parliament every day.

On December 1, the President will deliver his annual address to the Verkhovna Rada and the Ukrainians.

As it was reported, on November 26, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukrainian intelligence had received tips about  about the ongoing talks between representatives of Ukraine and Russia on the possible participation of Rinat Akhmetov in the coup on Decembr 1st.
