LVOV, December 08, 19:44 /ITAR-TASS/. The so-called “people’s veche” (assembly) in Ukraine’s western city of Lvov began with a prayer for Ukraine. About 5,000 people gathered near the monument to Taras Shevchenko in central Lvov on Sunday to express their support to protesters in Kiev’s Independence Square who demanded the resignation of the Ukrainian government, early parliamentary and presidential elections and the signing of an association agreement with the European Union.
The bulk of protesters in Lvov are supporters of the nationalist party Svoboda (Liberty) and the Batkivshchina (Fatherland) opposition party. No flags featuring the symbols of Vitaly Klitchko’s UDAR party were seen.
Local police reported no violations of public order.
