Unknown people heading towards Ukrainian presidential administration building; shots audible
A group of people have tried to break through to the building of the Ukrainian presidential administration from the side of Khreschatyk Street.
At around 1500 a group of unknown individuals headed towards the administration surrounded by several police cordons. Shots and explosions can be heard, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent said.
Internal Troops who formed a live cordon have been put on alert.
Meanwhile, law enforcement declined to comment on the situation, asking to refer to their bosses.
A warning has already been issued that police will use firearms if protestors continue attacking law enforcement, a spokesperson for the Ukrainian Interior Ministry said.
It was reported that Maidan self-defense repeatedly called from the stage on the protestors not to go outside the Independence Square perimeter. Opposition leaders stated possible provocations.
