KIEV, November 28, 14:20 /ITAR-TASS/. The rally agitation of the past few days on Kiev's "EU Maidan" Square has practically subsided before the opening of the Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius.
Some 200 people remained near the Independence Monument on Thursday morning. Late on Wednesday, there were about 2,000 people under yellow-and-blue flags of Ukraine and blue flags of the European Union on the square.
Those who remained at the site for the night warmed themselves near five barrels with fire and in the emergencies ministry tent left by city authorities for protesters.
Songs were heard from the “open” microphone. Demonstrators from time to time had short runs or danced. Several people with black-and-red flags of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army appeared on the square at about 09:00 on Thursday.
There were no demonstrators on European Square, which earlier was the site of the rally headquarters. The square was open for transport and pedestrians on Thursday.
Only one demonstrator remained near the government buildings, where pickets stood in the past six days, protesting against the cabinet's decision to suspend the preparation for signing the agreement with the EU. The entry to the building was closed with metal barriers. About 30 policemen were on the small area before the entrance. Eight police buses were parked in the yard, and four buses, in which Berkut special purpose unit members were resting, were in the park across the road.
