KIEV, December 29, 17:35 /ITAR-TASS/. More than ten police buses and about 100 policemen have cordoned off Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich’s residence Mezhigorye in the settlement of Novye Petrovtsy outside Kiev, the national television Channel 5 reported on Sunday.
According to earlier reports, several hundreds of protesters, who were heading to the presidential residence, broke through traffic police cordons at the entryway to the settlement. Now they have reached another police cordon blocking the road. Now the site is a venue of a rally. Among its participants are lawmakers with opposition parties. The protesters are waiting for a motorcade with more people and leaders of the opposition.
Earlier on Sunday, a motorcade of 200 cars started from Kiev’s central European Square to picket the residences of President Viktor Yanukovich, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov and speaker of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) Vladimir Rybak.
