Channel 5 and Korrespondent.net report that supporters of Yanukovych are also setting up tents - across the street from the Cabinet of Ministers building. As of 2 am, there were 10 tents, but there'll be more.

Yushchenko and Tymoshenko are planning to take their supporters to Verkhovna Rada (very close to the CabMin) and the presidential administration building tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, I don't understand how confrontation can be avoided. Maybe those Yanukovych guys will be shocked by the numbers and determination of their opponents and will deem it more reasonable to switch sides - but that's not too likely...

  1. Veronica, this is an important moment in history. I think it is cool and important that Ukraine values the voices women such as Yulia Tymoshenko. And I admire you. Don

  3. Keep the pressure on the corrupt government.

    Do not relent. Never give up.

    You will prevail like the Solidarity movement in Poland.

    We support you in America. You will prevail.

  4. This is such an amazing moment. Please keep up the posts. Those of us in Ukraine probably get even less TV coverage than in other countries. And I can't share the joy with the locals lest I be accused of interfering.

    This is a wonderful time. I hope this begins Ukraine's journey out of the darkness.
