KIEV, February 19, (ITAR-TASS) - Some fire brigades managed to get through to the burning Trade Union House in Kiev’s Independence Square. The local television broadcasts show a stairs with a platform on top reach the upper floors, but, judging from the picture, coping with the fire is very problematic.
There were reports inside the building could be blocked several people. However, nobody can offer precise information. Some time earlier this night, people were evacuated from the lower floors on ropes. No calamities have been reported.
Meanwhile the television shows a fire vehicle, which was blocked in the attempt to get to the House, which was considered to be the opposition’s so-called “headquarters of the national protest.”
The radicals in Independence Square continue burning tyres in attempts to get separated from the riot police.
