KIEV, April 29. /TASS/. Supporters of the ultra-right Ukrainian organization Right Sector have left the square in front of the presidential office but promised to be back on the weekend to set fire to the building.
Wednesday’s protest action gathered about 200 radicals, whose leaders earlier urged the armed forces to disobey the authorities. Right Sector spokesman Artyom Skoropadsky said the demonstration was a warning.
"Next time we will set the presidential office building on fire," he said about further action to be taken if the rightist activists’ demands were ignored.
Right Sector militants were demanding meetings with senior officials, but nobody emerged from the building and the demonstrators left. Next time they are going to demonstrate on the weekend.
Earlier, Right Sector militants said that their base in the Dnepropetrovsk Region had been surrounded by two paratroop brigades. The radicals said "the authorities are planning a large-scale provocation against the volunteers and urged their "brothers" to protest.
