KIEV, December 06. /ITAR-TASS/. A group of opposition deputies blocked the rostrum in the Supreme Rada on Friday morning before the meeting began.
"We have a whole package of demands to the authorities," a deputy from the Batkivshchyna party, Nikolai Tomenko, said. At first, it is necessary to stop political persecutions, and those guilty of the beating of students at Independence Square on November 30 must be brought to justice, he said.
EU Ambassador to Ukraine Jan Tombinski and other diplomats arrived at the parliament on Friday. Tombinski told reporters that he had come with EU representative Erica Schmidt to meet with leaders of political factions and talk with them about their plans and how to settle the crisis.
In reply to the question whether the EU would be a mediator in negotiations between the opposition and the authorities, Tombinski answered that would not.
