KIEV, December 04 /ITAR-TASS/. The Kiev Mayor’s Office did not stop working while protests were held in the centre of the Ukrainian capital, Anatoly Golubchenko, the first deputy city mayor, reported on Wednesday.
“All sections and utilities services did not stop operations if only for a day,” he said, noting that this work is essential to services in the megalopolis and to the payment of wages to personnel in the public sector.
The first deputy mayor expressed gratitude to all the staffers of the administration “who work diligently and fulfill their duties despite temporary inconvenience.” “Some may think that this happens of its own accord but these seemingly customary processes are based on urgent managerial decisions,” Golubchenko remarked.
Meanwhile, the centre of protesters is still housed on the ground floor of the town hall in Kreshchatyk street. Many people come there to take rest and get warm.
Head of the city state administration Alexander Popov told reporters on Wednesday no action would be taken to drive protesters out of the building. “I am absolutely sure and will do all so that there should be no pressure to free the building,” he said. At the same time, Popov made assurances that negotiations were being conducted with the protesters and a certain compromise would soon be reached.
