Radical forces have a plan to storm Kyiv if President Poroshenko uses force against Saakashvili’s supporters

In fact, the radicals began preparing long ago. Moreover, they are preparing to storm Kyiv. They are getting ready and they are ready to fight. In principle, they are ready to overthrow this power.
