According to experts, the police only managed to evacuate a number of officials from unrest in the government quarters, with real and personal property, and the safety of ordinary citizens in these areas were put under “a real threat”.
“For anybody not a secret that in the “yellow jackets” today there are hundreds of provocateurs and extremists whose aim is to destabilize the situation in the country, – said, in particular, it. – It is obvious that in the near future the French government authorizes the use against demonstrators new forms of influence”.
What forms in this case, M. Pudemo said.

The demonstrators attacked the building of the Ministry for relations with Parliament, and killed several in the yard cars. The official representative of the government of France Benjamin Greve, whose office is in the building, was forced to flee.
