KIEV, April 29. /TASS/. A crowd of 200 supporters of Ukraine’s ultra-right organization Right Sector, outlawed in Russia as extremist, has gathered in front of the Ukrainian presidential administration building, a TASS correspondent reports from the scene.
According to Right Sector’s press-secretary Artyom Skoropadsky, the "protest action has not begun yet in earnest and today it will not gather many people."
"Most of Right Sector activists are now in the Dnipropetrovsk Region, where the battalion has its base," he said. "This is a warning demonstration. But it may last as long as the presidential administration will be on fire."
Skoropadsky warned that if the demonstrators’ demands were ignored, "next time we shall set fire to the presidential administration building."
Another Right Sector activist, Alexey Byk, said he and his men were there "to address the president with a reminder he is not enteral and that setting volunteer battalions and the regular army against each other is nothing but a provocation of bloodshed."
At the moment the presidential building is surrounded by three police cordons. Buses with National Guard servicemen are parked inside the gateways of buildings around.
