KIEV, December 01, 19:11 /ITAR-TASS/. The Berkut riot police have pushed off the aggressive crowd from the building of the Ukrainian president’s administration in Kiev after three-hour’s attempts to storm the building. Protesters are flocking at the crossroads of Banovskaya and Institutskaya Streets. Opposition leaders are inviting them to join the rally in Independence Square (maidan Nezalezhnosti).
The Ukrainian opposition has decided to organize a “national headquarters” in Kiev’s central Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti), the press service of the opposition party Batkivshchina said on Sunday, quoting its leader Arseny Yatsenyuk.
“We have taken a decision to organize a national headquarters in Maidan,” he said, addressing participants in a mass rally here.
He urged Western countries to impose sanctions against the Ukrainian president and the government for forcible dispersal of a Saturday rally of supporters of Ukraine’s European integration. He also said he would do his best to have the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) vote on a draft resolution on the government’s resignation. “We shall stay here until Azarov (prime minister) goes,” he said.
The opposition also demands that Ukrainian Interior Minister Vitaly Zakharchenko be brought to responsibility for the use of force against protesters in Maidan.
