Ukrainian House occupied by opposition in Kyiv will house press center, catering point
KYIV. Jan 26 (Interfax) - Protesters in Kyiv plan to use the Ukrainian House which law enforcers left Saturday night as a place for warming up and taking meals, commandant of the house Alexei Yakushevsky said.
"I believe that it will accommodate a press center for journalists, and also a place for feeding and warming up hundreds of people whom we cannot accommodate in the Trade Union House," he said to Interfax Sunday morning.
He stressed that access to the fourth and fifth floors containing the holdings and archives of the Museum of the History of Kyiv will remain closed as the museum's valuables are located there.
Meanwhile, the museum curator said that an act had been signed between representatives of the museum and the commandant under which the opening of the doors to the museums was recorded.
After signing the act the commandant promised to seal off entry to the repository and guard it.
Presently activists continue clearing the premises from broken glass and litter. They are fixing broken windows with pieces of plywood and fabric.
Several dozen protesters are resting in the second and third floors.
The situation in Hrushevsky Street which has been the epicenter of the clashes in Kyiv for a week remains steadily clam.
