"Our activists will be on duty here to prevent any provocations and conflicts situations being provoked by our opponents," the spokesman for the Regions Party's branch in Kyiv, Kostiantyn Tryfonenko said.
The Regions Party has placed its activists outside the buildings of the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine and Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals on Moskovska Street in Kyiv.
"Our activists will be on duty here to prevent any provocations and conflicts situations being provoked by our opponents," the spokesman for the Regions Party's branch in Kyiv, Kostiantyn Tryfonenko, told Interfax-Ukraine on Wednesday.
He said that the number of people on duty would not rise.
An Interfax-Ukraine reporter said that about 30 people in blue plastic coats with Regions Party symbols were walking in small groups along the buildings of the courts.
The mentioned courts are resolving disputes connected to the election process.
Mass rallies in support of presidential candidate Viktor Yanukovych are currently being held only outside the building of the Central Election Commission.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
