KIEV, December 08, 12:00 /ITAR-TASS/. In Kiev’s Independence Square, where the oppositions plans to organise an assembly /veche/, there are relatively not so many people - about one thousand. The neighbouring Institutskaya Street is deserted. The opposition’s all the barricades have been removed from there. Nor many people are in Bankovskaya Street, which is divided by a barricade of iron screens. About 15 people with the opposition’s flags are there. Two streets to the buildings of the Cabinet and the parliament are still blocked by buses. Nobody is around the barriers set up by the police there.
Grushevskogo Street along the buildings of the Cabinet and the Verkhovna Rada /parliament/ is deserted, too, though by the government’s building there are about 15 police buses and forces of the Berkut police rapid reaction unit. The street by Verkhovna Rada is still blocked by buses, and the building is surrounded by the police.
Meanwhile, and alternative rally supporting President Viktor Yanukovich, is organising near the parliament. As yet, about 1,500 participants are there, and more people are coming.
As yet, the situation in the city is calm. The opposition’s leaders claimed they hoped to gather at least one million or at least to replicate the results of previous Sunday. On that day, about half a million people gathered in the Independence Square.
