KIEV, December 09, 5:37 /ITAR-TASS/. The opposition did not fix any candidacy for the position of the city's "revolutionary commandant", the UDAR party's press service reported on Monday.
"The candidacy of Nikolai Katerinchuk for the position of Kiev's commandant has not been fixed with the opposition, with the UDAR (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms) party, in particular," the press service quotes Alexei Davydenko, a member of the UDAR faction at the Kiev City Council, as saying.
"We did not hold any talks on Katerinchuk and, in general, did not fix any candidacy for the post of the city's commandant," Davydenko emphasized.
On Sunday night, the protesters in Kiev elected Nikolai Katerinchuk, a member of parliament from the Batkivshchina party, to be a "revolutionary commandant" of the capital of Ukraine. He himself suggested his candidacy for the position, and the "people's veche" (assembly) unanimously upheld the proposal.
