Activists "blockading" ministry building in Kyiv - leader
KYIV. Jan 27 (Interfax) - Activists of Ukraine's Spilna Sprava (Common Cause) group on Monday left the Justice Ministry building, which they had been occupying since Sunday evening, and "are going over … to blockade it," group leader Oleksandr Danylyuk wrote on Facebook.
Spilna Sprava activists had claimed that the purpose of occupying the building in Kyiv was to have a place to warm themselves up and have a night's sleep.
Justice Minister Olena Lukash, in a televised address, urged to the occupiers activists to vacate the building and threatened to otherwise ask the National Security and Defense Council to consider declaring a national state of emergency.
The activists ignored an appeal from Vitali Klitschko, leader of the UDAR opposition party, who went inside the building and asked the activists to leave.
The National Resistance Committee distanced itself from the building's occupation, branding it as a "provocation."
