KIEV, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Leaders of Ukraine’s irreconcilable opposition Vitaly Klichko, Arseny Yatsenyuk and Oleg Tyagnybok are expected to continue talks with the authorities regarding political settlement of the dragged-out crisis in the country, Klichko, the leader of UDAR party told a crowd of protesters after a meeting with officers of the Berkut riot police unit on Grushevsky Street.
Klichko, who himself underwent the impact of the protesters rage last weekend when someone from the crowd directed a jet of foam from a fire extinguisher at him as he was trying to communicate with the crowd, asked the protesters “to suspend the standoff /with the police/ until the end of talks and to ensure that the trebuchet is out of action and no one throws stones.”
The crowd supported him on that point.
Klichko also said the talks would continue until 20:00 hours EEST, or 18:00 hours GMT. He promised to return to Grushevsky Street upon their completion.
