KIEV, February 16, 13:37 /ITAR-TASS/. Protesters in Kiev who have been occupying the building of the Kiev City Administration for the past two months have gathered their possessions and moved to the Oktryabrsky palace or to the Ukrainian house.
A group of people was seen inside the building doing an overall cleanup shortly before this report went on wire.
“We plan to vacate the building in full before the beginning of the ‘people’s viche’ (a self-styled popular assembly of the irreconcilable opposition leaders and activists and their supporters - Itar-Tass),” a demonstrator told Itar-Tass. “We’ll thus fulfill provisions of the law on amnesty.”
The timing of effectuation of the law on amnesty for participants in the January actions of protest depends entirely on when the opposition activists fulfill a range of conditions envisioned by the document.
The law says in part that the oppositionists should vacate all the administrative buildings they seized in Kiev and other cities and towns during the riots at the beginning of the year and to unblock Grushevsky Street in Kiev, as well as other streets and squares for traffic. The provision does not apply to the squares where peaceful actions of protest are held.
The opposition quarters are expected to move out of all the buildings by February 17. Otherwise provisions of the law on amnesty will lose legal effect automatically.
