KIEV, February 22, 5:46 /ITAR-TASS/. “People’s self-defence” units took control over Kiev’s government quarter on Friday as police left.
They are protecting the buildings of Verkhovnaya Rada (parliament) and the cabinet of ministers with an aim to prevent the looting and are patrolling Grushevsky Street from the House of Officers up to the European Square.
In their speeches on Independence Square, the opposition leaders also called on the protesters to provide law and order in the Ukrainian capital’s government quarter in order to prevent further escalation of tensions.
Though the rally is still under way on Kiev’s Independence Square, the situation in central Kiev is calm.
