KIEV, February 16, 16:46 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s opposition leaders, who are planning to visit Berlin on Monday to speak with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, want to ask the European Union to “give Ukraine a clear signal what kind of social and political assistance it can count on,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk, one of the leaders of the opposition party Batkivshchina (Fatherland), said on Sunday, addressing those who gathered in Kiev’s central Independence Square for a routine “popular veche” (a self-styled popular assembly of the irreconcilable opposition leaders and activists and their supporters - Itar-Tass).
According to Yatsenyuk, the opposition leaders wanted the European Union to grant Ukrainians a visa-free travel regime, to issue financial support and investments, and to extend a helping hand in court and police reforms. Apart from that, the Ukrainian opposition wants “Ukraine to ultimately become a member of the European family and a member of the European Union,” Yatsenyuk said.
“Popular veches” have been organized in central Kiev on Sunday for about two months running to heat up protester moods, especially in Ukraine’s western regions.
