KIEV, December 03, 22:36 /ITAR-TASS/. Protesters have cleared away from the streets around the building of the Ukrainian president’s administration and returned to the Independence Square. Local police say there are about 10,000 people in the square, while some media claim there are about 25,000 protesters in central Kiev.
Police say no violations of public order have been registered.
Meanwhile, participants in the action are putting up tents in the Independence Square. The situation is calm.
The local television however said that the police had detained a man, a resident of the Kiev region, who had metal balls, a gas spray can and a gas mask on him. The man was detained after opposition supporters, who had suspected him of being a provoker, had called the police.
Earlier, Ukrainian Interior Minister Vitali Zakharchenko said that his ministry was ready to establish jointly with volunteers patrols to ensure law and order at places of mass actions. “If you have any information about provokers and people having objects that can cause bodily injuries, please contact police,” he said.
