KIEV, December 02ю /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev’s Independence Square is almost empty on Monday morning, while protesting passions have mounted on Sunday. There are nearly more than 200 people on the whole square now, meanwhile, the most numerous groups by about 30 people each have concentrated at the metallic shields, which had blocked the driveways on the square from Kreshchatik Avenue.The group of about 80 young people have gathered on the crossroads of the streets Institutskaya and Bankovaya and at the Ukrainian presidential administration building. The protesters attempted to break through the police commando cordon there on Sunday, but on Monday morning the situation is quite calm.
The police cordon in four lines is placed at the Ukrainian government compound. On Sunday, December 1, the opposition stated about the intention to block the governmental buildings, but yet the protesters are not quite active at the government building. The flashpoint remains the building of the Kiev city state authorities, which the demonstrators had captured on Sunday. Several hundred demonstrators are staying there and refuse to the appeals of the law enforcers to leave the building.
