KIEV, January 27 (Itar-Tass) - Participants in mass unrest in the Ukrainian capital have seized one of the Justice Ministry's buildings located in proximity to Independence Square, a number of local media reported. A source at Ukraine's Interior Ministry confirmed the information in an Itar-Tass interview.

The source said a message about an attempt at seizing the Justice Ministry building had come to the Kiev city militia at 22:38, local time on Sunday.

The so-called "Spilna Sprava" (Common Cause) civil movement placed a statement on its page in Facebook, asserting that it was precisely its supporters who seized the Justice Minisry building on Architect Gorodetsky Street in downtown Kiev.

According to Ukrainian media, it was precisely this group that had seized the building of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food and that of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry on December 24.
