KIEV, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Several thousand of supporters of Ukraine’s European integration remain in the Independence Square though a force mission of law enforcement authorities seemed quite possible. The protesters barricaded approaches to the square by screens and wooden bars and put their guards around the square. Volunteers have blocked Kreshchatic Street from both sides using their own vehicles.
In case the police attacked, the protesters divided themselves into mobile groups.
Several dozen tents are in the Square now. Leader of UDAR, boxer Vitaly Klichko thanked the supporters for their civil position stressing Monday would be a “complicated day.”
Some protesters also remain in the territory of Kiev’s city administration, where they have headquarters.
One of the leaders of the opposition, ex-Interior Minister Yuri Lutsenko said the police had allowed the protesters to remain in the administration's territory until 07:00 local time (05:00 GMT). “We had talks with the police. We are leaving the territory at 7 in the morning, as the business day begins. Most activists will go to the Independence Square, and the deputies will remain inside.”
Head of Kiev’s police Valery Koryak promised the law enforcement authorities would not use force to clear the administration’s building from the protesters.
“We do not use a force attack. At first we shall speak to the deputies inside, and then shall decide how to move on,” he said.
MP Andrei Strannikov of UDAR shares the information he has that the deputies received recommendations not to come to work on Monday.
“This may mean two options. Either the capital city’s authorities do not see a way out from the current situation. Or they get ready for the Berkut forces to clear the hall, where the active protesters from the Independence Square still remain,” he said.
