She also addressed to ambassadors, representatives of diplomatic missions and consuls "to consider what is being done when European future is being destroyed under aegis of some European values and to condemn any manifestations of aggression".

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.
