KIEV, December 21, (ITAR-TASS). A “wall of wailing and fighting” was erected at the opposition tent city in Kiev, capital of Ukraine.
The wall is made of wooden bars, each bearing the name of the city from which the activists have come to the protest that has been going on in the centre of Kiev for a month. The names range from Kryzhopol to Nezhin and Kovel, and even Hannover.
The situation in this part of the city is calm. An impromptu checkpoint has been set up at the barricades that block the central Kreshchatik Street near the building of the city mayor’s office, seized by oppositionists, where a strong guy in a camouflage coat and steel helmet is closely watching the passing cars. One of the opposition leaders, Arseny Yatsenyuk, visited the checkpoint at about noon.
Several TV journalists can be seen around. They have come to Independence Square where the opposition tent city is set up after a report on the social networks that the city administration had received a request for a clean-up campaign in the centre of the city and that volunteers were going to remove the barricades.
“The people who gather in the square must not cause problems or harm to those around them. No one is taking away their right to a peaceful protest. The stage, the tents and structures off the roads will not be touched, but the roads must be cleared for free passage of vehicles,” the request said.
