The ministerial building was captured when the last amendments were being drafted in the law on changes in Ukrainian Constitution and on return of the country’s Constitution of 2004.

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".
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.
