LVOV, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Protesters who had occupied the building of the state administration in the Lvov region have decided to vacate the seized premises and turn them over into management of a regional Council, a source from the local headquarters of "people's self-defense forces" told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"We are turning over the administrative building to the Council. But, its chairman is to assume the responsibility now. We will vacate the seized buildings step-by-step," commandant of the self-defense headquarters Andrei Sokolov told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. The protesters will continue to prevent the former state administration heads from going to the territory of the regional administration, but its rank-and-file staff will be admitted unimpeded, Sokolov said.
"The people will not let the Chairman of the regional state administration and his fellow deputies return to the building," Sokolov said. The earlier built barricades, which are nearly three meters high, will not be dismantled, Sokolov said.
The protesters stormed the building of the Lvov regional administration in Vinnichenko street on January 23. Chairman of the Lvov state Administration Oleg Salo declared then that the protesters forced him to tender his resignation. In the following days Oleg Salo withdrew the document, saying he had to sign it under pressure. He continues to perform his functions as the head of the Lvov state administration "in a telephone regime", he said.
The Lvov regional Prosecutor's office has opened an investigation into the fact of an illegal occupation of an administrative building. Criminal proceedings have been appointed for violation of the Penal Code, which fetches punishment in the form of restriction of freedom for three-five years or a prison term from three to six years, a source from the Lvov Prosecutor's office told Itar-Tass.
