KIEV, November 24. /ITAR-TASS/. About 50,000 have come to Kiev’s European Square to participate in the rally called For European Ukraine, the city police told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
At the same time, the event’s organisers claim 100,000 participants. The square is full, and new people continue to arrive. The participants fill the neighbouring streets. They carry flags of Ukraine and of the European Union.
“Ukrainians want to live like Europe does,” boxer Vladimir Klichko, brother of UDAR’s leader, said. “I am sure, together we shall win.” He criticised the country’s leaders who had suspended the process of the European integration.
On November 21, Ukraine’s government decided to suspend the process of preparing for concluding an agreement with the EU at the Vilnius summit due on November 28-29. In the afternoon on that day many Ukrainians came to the Independent Square in Kiev protesting against the decision. Since then, every day up to 3,000 come to the central square in the heart of Kiev.
Similar rallies are organised throughout Ukraine.
