There are no supporters of the local administration although several thousands of people were at the building last night. Traffic has not been blocked off.

The opposition is staying in the administration’s building: it has organized a medical aid post and a dining room on the ground floor. Leaders of Kharkov’s Maidan, as well as several radical groups, are on the first flood.

Governor Mikhail Dobkin has not arrived yet in the office. At 13:00 Moscow time he is expected to meet journalists. No reports on postponing the news conference are available yet. However, it is not clear if the governor is able to come to the building.

On Sunday, the opposition did not allow either the governor or Kharkov Mayor Gennady Kernes to enter the building.

In the meantime, Dobkin and Kernes said they did not intend to resign.
