People go to rallies, strike and put forward demands to the authorities and law enforcement agencies, as well as storm or siege the RSA.
Thursday, January 23, became a new stage in the confrontation between the people of Ukraine and its current government. And the main events took place not in Kiev, where a truce was announced, but in the regions. As expected, Western Ukraine was the first to speak. In Lviv, Rivne and Ternopil, thousands of people took to the streets. They held meetings in central squares, after which they occupied the buildings of regional state administrations. This process was very fast and with minimal resistance from local law enforcement. The police either did not interfere at all, or limited themselves to closing the doors to the administrative buildings that were promptly knocked out, reports NR2.ru.
Hundreds of self-defense are being formed in the rebel western regions and barricades are being built near the RSA buildings. Field kitchens are also being built here.
Mourning, warning strikes, security pickets and journalistic protests. In the Ukrainian regions, they respond differently to capital events, the TSN story says.
More than half a thousand people gathered under the walls of the regional state administration in Ivano-Frankivsk for a warning strike. For a minute of silence, they honored the memory of the "Euromaidanovtsy" who died in Kiev. Militiamen who guarded the entrance to the administration with a tight ring were forced to take off their hats. At the request of the protesters, the Governor came out. But he did not agree either to write a resignation letter or to quit the Party of Regions, as people called him. The strike lasted more than 2 hours. After that, the protesters marched along the streets of the city.
In Ternopil, the Arts Square was renamed Heroes Square Euromaidan. So decided the city deputies. They also appealed to the president to repeal the laws passed on January 16. And the townspeople, meanwhile, are picketing the regional militia for the fourth day in a row. Today, to find out on which side the Ternopol siloviki, poets and artists came. There was a small scuffle when angry protesters saw that a plain-clothes policeman was fixing everything on camera.
Leading newspapers Melitopol and Chernivtsi came out with white stripes. Thus, journalists are protesting against new laws adopted by the Verkhovna Rada and signed by the president. In place of the traditional editorials of publications from Zaporozhye, only ad units have been retained. And the Bukovina ones - slogans “Dictatorship is NO! We DO NOT RECOGNIZE anti-constitutional laws!” “This is not our last action, we are planning a number of events that we can do, which together with other media will continue until these laws are repealed,” promised the chief editor of the Young Bukovynets newspaper, Bogdan Zagaysky.
White banners covered with red paint, state flags with mourning ribbons and photos of those killed on the Grushevsky multi-hundreds column were carried by demonstrators through the streets of Lutsk . Protesters walked along the sidewalks, trying not to interfere with traffic, made short stops in crowded places, near the buildings of the Security Service of Ukraine, the prosecutor's office and the police. Young people called their action a march of those who are not indifferent.
Earlier it was reported that in six regions, the protesters took control of local RSA. In Lviv, Zhytomyr, Rivne and Khmelnitsky premises were seized.
In Zhytomyr, local protesters launched an assault on the regional state administration after the deputies did not support the proposal to put on the agenda of the session on January 23 the issue of the socio-political situation in Ukraine. After the storming, the deputies changed their mind and included a vital issue on the agenda: 76 votes in favor.
In Exactly, the assault of the RSA took place after the People’s Chamber, though vandalism was not done here - the protesters smashed the door. They put a demand before the acting governor of the region, Anatoly Yukhimenko, to contact in a telephone mode with President Viktor Yanukovych, so that he would remove the Berkut soldiers and internal troops from the capital. Also, activists demanded that the deputies of the regional council held an extraordinary session today, and transferred the power to the People's Rada.
In Khmelnitsky, protesters also seized the building of the regional state administration and barricaded the entrance to the premises. Activists formed a living corridor through which they are going to let in and let out officials. Another 20 activists blocked the entrances to the building. In addition, a perpetual action has been announced in the city center.
The outraged protesters tried to storm the Poltava Regional State Administration , but their determination was able to be stopped by the local police chief Vitaly Yemets. He took off his hat to honor a minute of silence for the murdered activists in Kiev, and together with everyone he sang the Anthem of Ukraine. After that, the protesters were able to dissuade from further escalating the conflict.
In Cherkassy, protesters broke into the RSA building after a brief assault and aggressive defense. After breaking through the door, a shot was heard, media reported. Also in the building there are people in full ammunition. Meanwhile, activists continued to pour water into freezing temperatures.
Protesters in Ternopil seized the RSA building. Several thousand people stormed the premises for over an hour. Outside, the entrance doors were blocked by police, and from the inside, the entrance was blocked by the "Berkut". At first, people were pulling out militiamen one at a time, tearing off epaulettes from them and passing them into the crowd, and then smashing the doors and breaking through. "Golden Eagle" rushed to their heels.
