KIEV, December 07, 15:59 /ITAR-TASS/. The Kiev television centre has not been seized. Policemen guard the centre in connection with the call of some protesters to block its work, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry said in an official statement on Saturday.

"Policemen are near the administrative buildings of the television tower. Law enforcers have not reported public order violations," the ministry said.

On Saturday morning, some Internet publications reported about alleged seizure of the Kiev television centre by law-enforcers. The information is not true, the statement noted.

The public relations department of the Kiev police reports that on Friday during the meeting near the Shevchenkovsky district court in Kiev, some groups of persons expressed intention to block the Kiev television centre's work. In this connection, the decision was taken to send law enforcers to the building to ensure public order and prevent violations, the Interior Ministry said.

The ministry asked media to give checked and true information.

As an Itar-Tass correspondent, who was near the television centre, said earlier, the situation was calm. The editorial staffs of three TV channels -- First National, 1+1 and Era -- are in the centre at Melnikov Street. Access to its territory is open for those who have passes, as usual.
