KIEV, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. All the employees working for Ukrainian state organizations in the so-called government quarter in the area of Institutskaya and Grushevsky Street have received an instruction to leave their offices, a woman working on the permanent staff of the Verkhovna Rada, the national parliament told Itar-Tass.
“We’ve been asked to leave our workplaces in the middle of the day but haven’t received any explanations,” she said.
Shops and cafes on Kreshchatik and other streets are closing earlier, too, and managers are letting workers go home.
The staff of Ukraine’s national radio, the headquarters of which is located on Kreshchatik have been advised to leave the office unless they have urgent work to do, “as the situation in the city is tense.”
Arms shops in the downtown are also closing urgently. Their stocks of weaponry have already been removed on well-guarded vehicles to safer places.
“Our shop will be closed until the situation in the city returns to normal,” a manager at a gun shop located near Kreshchatik told Itar-Tass.
Managers at other urgently closing stores, public catering facilities and offices have refrained from comments, while local media are trying to explain for the situation by a possibility of violent actions and provocations, which may inflict damage on people’s health, as well as on facilities and the stocks of goods.
