1ST LEAD Anti-corruption demonstrators, police clash at Kiev protest camp By Peter Spinella, dpa

Kiev (dpa) - Protesters demanding an end to corruption in Ukraine clashed with police at a tent camp outside the parliament building in Kiev on Wednesday, state media reported.

Ukrainian state news agency Ukrinform cited a local news outlet, Hromadske, which reported that tear gas had been used to disperse the crowd.

Protesters had set up more than 50 tents for a long-term demonstration fuelled by accusations of entrenched corruption among the country‘s leadership.

Russian state news agency TASS said Ukrainian special forces had stormed the camp.

An estimated 500 protesters were in the area on Wednesday morning after an anti-corruption rally attended by several thousand the previous day devolved into clashes with police.

The protesters have demanded the establishment of a court tasked solely with tackling corruption and called for legislators to be stripped of immunity from prosecution.

Georgia‘s former president, Mikheil Saakashvili, who more recently was the governor of Ukraine‘s prominent Odessa region, until he stepped down last year accusing the country‘s leadership of perpetuating entrenched corruption, helped lead Tuesday‘s rally.

Saakashvili was stripped of Ukrainian citizenship while he was out of the country in July. He re-entered by walking across the Polish border into Ukraine last month during a mass brawl between his supporters and border staff.

Russia, whose relations with neighbouring Ukraine have plummeted to an all-time low since it annexed Ukraine‘s southern Crimea region in response to Kiev ousting its pro-Russian president in 2014, said the current situation in Kiev appeared unstable.

"We are closely following the developments there," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in comments carried by Russian state news agency TASS. "The situation is far from stable. That‘s an obvious fact."

Ukraine‘s military has been battling Russian-supported rebels for the past three years in the country‘s two eastern-most regions, which border Russia.

Saakashvili led Georgia at the time of a brief war with Russia in 2008, during which his country lost control of two regions bordering Russia.

The conflict zones severely hinder Ukraine‘s and Georgia‘s aspirations of joining the Western military alliance NATO. Russia has long condemned NATO‘s eastward expansion as a threat to its national security.
