KIEV, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. The Kiev protesters grouped in an organized column have moved from the building of the Mayor's office to the Prosecutor's office to demand release of their fellow pickets who were detained by police in recent days.
Meanwhile, the situation on Independence square was calm with relatively few protesters (around 1,500) seen. Last night the opposition supporters considerably reinforced the barricades and made them much higher all along the perimeter of Independence square. A tent compound earlier built on the square remained practically unchanged, but the barricades were turned into mini-fortress walls nearly five meters high.
The barricades built of all sorts of rubbish, waste, wood fragments and fastened with barbed wire on the top are seen on both sides of Kreshchatik alley. More barricades have been built in Proreznaya street around 100 meters away from Independence square.
All the barricades were reinforced with barbed steel fragments; more hurdles made of pressed plastic stuff and covered with snow have been piled up on both sides of the barricades. One can hardly go up such a slippery path, keeping one's balance.
Last night the city administration ordered to remove the barricades from streets adjoining Independence square in order to resume traffic in the city. But the opposition protested. Although some of the barricades had been dismantled thanks to police support and taken away, loaded on freight trucks, the protesters have managed to build new, even stronger barricades throughout last night.
