KIEV, February 02, 7:22 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian opposition activists plan to hold an "assembly" of people in Kiev this Sunday to announce their demands for release of detained protesters from custody and formation of a new government, a source at the protest movement coordination centre told Itar-Tass, adding that the gathering of citizens would be rather informal.
The meeting is planned to begin on Independence Square at 13:00 local time (15:00 Moscow time).
"We will consult on Sunday about further actions, as the parliament will begin to work on February 4, one of the opposition leaders, Svoboda (Freedom) party head Oleg Tyagnibok, said on January 31, speaking about the opposition's plans.
One of the main demands is release of all the detained activists from prisons, and in the parliament, legislators must continue to put pressure on the authorities for constitution reforming, he added.
He believes an optimal solution is changing of the law on the Constitutional Court to give the right to the court to return the 2004 constitution (for Ukraine to be a parliamentary-presidential republic again).
The Supreme Rada's next meeting will begin on February 4. Speaker Vladimir Rybak said earlier that changes could be made to the constitution no earlier than next autumn. The minimum period is two sessions, he told television reporters, adding that if deputies wished, changes could be made within 2014.
According to Rybak, formulated proposals should be presented during the next session. Afterwards, during the next session in the fall, the changes could be adopted, if the proposals did not require a referendum, he said.
The last people's assembly took place in Kiev on January 19, this year. The same day, protesters started their violent opposition to authorities at Grushevsky Street near Dynamo stadium.
