KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Demonstrators on Independence Square on Wednesday tried to persuade radicals to leave the building of the Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry seized by activists of the radical movement Common Cause several days ago.
About 200 people gathered at the building at Kreshchatik Street, as activists negotiated with the radicals, asking them to leave the building. Svoboda (Freedom) party members stood in line to make a corridor for Common Cause activists to go out.
Radical protesters seized the ministry building on January 24. The guards offered no resistance, and the inscription “Right Sector”, the name of the movement taking an active part in clashes with police, appeared on the wall near the doorway to the building. Alexander Danilyuk, one of those storming the building, told reporters that it would house the group that “will be fulfilling the functions of armed forces”.
Police opened a criminal case over the seizure.
At the start of mass rallies in Kiev, protesters seized the House of Trade Unions and the building of the Kiev city administration.
January 27, the same group of protesters seized one of the buildings of Justice Ministry. The same day later, local media reported that protesters in Kiev unblocked the buildings of Ukraine’s Justice and Energy Ministries.
