KIEV, December 01, 4:59 /ITAR-TASS/. About 10,000 residents of Lvov, a city in Western Ukraine, are heading for Kiev to participate in a people’s assembly due to take place at noon on Sunday.
The action has been organized by three opposition parties, including Batkivshchina (Fatherland) of ex-prime minister Yulia Timoshenko, UDAR (Ukraine’s Alliance for Democratic Reforms) led by Vitaly Klichko and the Svoboda (Freedom) movement.
“Some people have already left for Kiev either by bus or by personal transport. Several deputies from the UDAR party will head a column that will set out at night so that people are not stopped on their way and turned back,” the press service of the UDAR (Punch) party said.
Vitaly Klichko, the UDAR party leader, on Saturday called on the people of Lvov to take part in the people’s assembly (veche) due to take place outside a monument to poet Taras Shevchenko in front of the Kiev State University. From there, the opposition column will move towards Independence Square.
