Around 7 pm yesterday, Maidan was practically empty. Not even the dancing young people were there. The weather was kind of chilly, maybe that's why.
Here's a video of "orange" women talking to some foreign reporters (not sure if it was ethical to just place myself next to them and basically steal their stuff with my tiny camera):
They came to have a look, but there's no Maidan, and there's no support for the coalition in Kyiv, because no Kyiv people have come to stand at Maidan, and if these guys had invested their souls into it, they would've been here now, but they aren't, and it's all been organized artificially only to fall apart...
Babushka with a little flag and an orange scarf around her neck seems to be the one who thought I was photographing her for Yanukovych people - but this time she didn't seem to mind.
Today, I just can't make myself go there again.
Ukrainska Pravda reports (UKR) that they're all watching Easter movies there now - all, including the Communists.
Korrespondent.net writes (RUS) that the Party of the Regions will hold no rallies "until Jesus rises" (until Monday, that is), but no one knows whether Communists and Socialists will abstain, too.
Yesterday, some crazy shit was happening at the Pechersk District Court - with the Party of the Regions politicians (not people) storming the building and, among other things, beating a young woman up. Then, one of those politicians was rude and loud - and lying - on 1+1, and the host got him to leave the studio, not politely, I've heard, but quite fairly.
