KIEV, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of the opposition party Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform (UDAR) Vitaly Klitschko has failed to convince protesters to free the building of Ukraine’s Justice Ministry, the party’s headquarters told Itar-Tass.
“Radical members of the movement ‘Spilna Sprava’ (Common Cause) have ignored Klitschko’s strong requests and arguments to free the ministry’s building at Gorodetsky Street,” the headquarters reported.
According to earlier reports, the opposition has tried to convince the movement’s leadership to free the ministry.
Head of the Common Cause Alexander Danilyuk said the movement’s activists intended to know if there were documents, proving that authorities were preparing to introduce a state of emergency.
“We are independent and we determine the steps ourselves. We’ve not agreed on any reconciliation,” Danilyuk said.
Meanwhile, police has instituted criminal proceeding upon the seizure of the Justice Ministry, the ministry’s press service reported.
Activists said the ministry had been seized for heating and night sleep.
Justice Minister Yelena Lukash said if protesters did not free the building, she would ask the National Security and Defence Council “to immediately introduce a state of emergency”.
