KIEV, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Around 2,000 supporters of the opposition have gathered at the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office building in the Ukrainian capital on Thursday. They demand the protesters detained by the police in the last few days should be released from custody. The demonstrators are crying out their demands through the loud speakers mounted on the roof of a minibus brought to the administrative building.
About 30 police officers are guarding the entrance to the prosecutor general’s office. The demonstrators and the police officers do not clash.
The appeal to go to the prosecutor general’s office was voiced on Independence Square at 09:00 EET. A tent camp is placed on the square for the participants of an indefinite protest action.
“We should go and call on them to release our comrades,” an opposition activist stated from the rostrum on the square. The column of protesters has gathered at the Kiev mayor’s office building, which the protesters had captured and had turned in their headquarters.
