KIEV, December 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Police officers during the night have not registered any serious offences linked with mass protests in Kiev's downtown, the press service of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry reported on Friday morning.
The protests were caused by the government’s decision not to sign a ambitious partnership agreement with the EU, despite years of negotiations aimed at integrating Ukraine with the EU. That decision was announced on November 21.
According to the Interior Ministry’s operation headquarters, crowds of people are still in Independent Square — almost 4,000 citizens.
At night, nearly 1,900 law enforcement officers were ensuring law and order in the Ukrainian capital. The Interior Ministry has again urged the protesters to be vigilant and not to yield to provocations.
