KIEV, February 09, /ITAR-TASS/. President Viktor Yanukovich has called out the leader of UDAR party, Vitali Klitschko, to a public debated, Klitschko told a crowd of his supporters as he made a yet another address to them on Kiev’s Independence Square /the Maidan/ where a routine “people’s viche” - a self-styled grassroots assembly -- was held.

“He called me out for a public debate and I agreed at once but I told him that he should come to Independence Square for debates with the people,” Klitschko said.

He did not specify either the place or the time of the debates but acted in line with the oppositionists’ tradition of apportioning all blame for the situation in the country to Yanukovich and called for an early presidential election.

Also in line with the opposition’s tradition, he called for a mass strike.
