Vitali Klitschko passed the cordon of riot police. He met commanders and soldiers of “Berkut” and Internal Troops squads.
He urged them to refrain from any actions against protesters in order to avoid bloodshed, and stay on the side of the people.
"Since this day, a lot depends on you. Either escalation of conflict in Ukraine will go on, or we take a step towards resolving the political crisis. You are the same citizens as those who are standing on the other side the barricade. Protect people, not power. I promise that those who do not carry out illegal orders against people will not be subject to harassment", Vitali Klitschko urged the police.
The priests told the leader of UDAR that they stay in Hrushevskoho Street prevent bloodshed. They are set to stand and pray for Ukraine.
After that Vitali Klitschko went to Bankova Street in order to meet with Yanukovych.
