According to Klychko, Internal Troops cordons at the Maidan is a psychological pressure on the protesters. He reminded that yesterday the activists blocked several streets in the governmental quarter, and today Internal Troops squads cordoned off entrances to the Maidan. Moreover, three stations of Kyiv Metro, Teatralna, Maidan Nezalezhnosti, and Khreshchatyk near the Maidan are closed.
“The government tries to execute psychological pressure on us and intimidate us, but the people are not going to leave and will keep on standing. We urge everyone to arrive at the Independence square immediately. The more people are here, the quicker we can ruin the plans of the power”, stated Klychko.
