KIEV, December 07, 11:32 /ITAR-TASS/. The premier described the opposition-organized blockade on the government buildings as an absolutely abnormal method.
"I want to appeal to the opponents' reason and conscience and say that they must return to the constitutional field and stop blocking the work of the state institutions -- the government, the presidential administration and the parliament and leave the building of the Kiev city administration," he stated.
According to the premier, they have to work to maintain the country’s life support and take decisions in the extreme situation and under the abnormal conditions. "This must be stopped, and all the foreign ministers, with whom we met at the 20th OSCE Minister Council meeting, supported me in it. All of them confirmed that it was absolutely abnormal. It is absolutely not a European way of development, which is so much talked about on the "Maidan" (Kiev's square).
The premier noted a few days ago he proposed to form an independent group to objectively investigate all the problems that caused concern of the opposition.
“I want to say once more that nothing is more important now than maintaining of order," he stressed.
