Cry of Ukraine

8 December 2013

The third “Popular Assembly” took place. By the evening of the 8th of December, at least 15 civil self-defense forces units were organized from the number of protesters on the Independence Square called as “hundreds.”

The protesters began to construct barricades in Grushovskaya street on the approaches to the building of the Minister’s Cabinet. Ultimatums demanding the resignation of the government sound more and more tough. SBU opened criminal case under part 1 of Article 109 of the Criminal Code (Actions aimed at the forcible change of power or change of the constitutional order, or the seizure of state power). In the evening, a group of vandals had demolished a statue of Lenin, which was set on the Bessarabia Square in 1946. The party of “Freedom” took all responsibility for the action. Although later party’s “leaders” reject it. However, instead of demolished statue was set the Ukrainian flag and a red-black banner of Ukrainian right radicals.
