KIEV, January 06, 23:47 /ITAR-TASS/. Protesters in Kiev’s central Independence Square have been left without electricity with practically all street lights off on Monday evening, the Orthodox Christmas Eve.
Lights are also off at the House of the Trade Union Federation, the “national headquarters” of the opposition, at the building of the central postal office and in a number of other buildings surrounding the square. Only several street lamps throw some light near the building of the hotel Ukraine. Protesters are running gasoline electricity generators to light up their tent camp and barricades.
The Kiev city administration has provided no comments about this blackout.
Earlier on Monday, the administration said it had been receiving numerous complaints from the city dwellers about problems posed by mass protest actions that have been staged in the centre of the city for the second month in a row. People who live in neighbouring houses are complaining of transport problems caused by protest actions and of heaps of litter near their homes.
