Klitschko, who along with the two other leaders of the irreconcilable opposition, Arseny Yatsenyuk and Oleg Tyagnibok, has apparently lost much of his power to control the rampaging crowds of radical “protesters”, also said the authorities should remove the law enforcement units from the streets of Kiev and other Ukrainian cities and send them back to the places of permanent stationing.
The oppositionist actions that escalated red-hot Tuesday have left at least twenty-five people dead, including seven to nine policemen.
