BERLIN, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle has warned the Ukrainian government of taking repressive measures against pro-European Union protesters in Kiev.
“In a democratic state peaceful protests cannot simply be banned or dispersed with the use of power by the government,” he said in Berlin on Wednesday.
“A protest is vital manifestation of people’s intention to move towards European Ukraine,” Westerwelle said. “Instead of protecting Maidan (Kiev’s central square) from the opposition and banning protests, it is necessary to start real political dialogue. Kiev knows quite well that the European Union and the Council of Europe are ready to provide assistance in this issue.
