Ternopil Mayor Serhiy Nadal, who is a Svoboda Party member, says he is outraged at a crackdown on Euromaidan [Independence Square] protesters in Kyiv and calls all concerned fellow citizens to go to a popular assembly in Kyiv on December 1.

"All Ukrainians, regardless of political affiliations, religion, language, must unite in order to get rid of the criminal powers that be. I appeal to young people, students, entrepreneurs, vehicle owners, to all Ternopil residents who care, and urge all of them to go to Kyiv," the mayor said in his statement, which is posted on Ternopil City Council's Web site on Saturday.

He called on Ternopil residents to come to the popular assembly in Kyiv at 12 noon on December 1 with blue and yellow flags.

"At dawn on November 30 there was a brutal and bloody crackdown on peaceful Euromaidan protesters on Kyiv's Independence Square. The country has been witnessing brutal repression, the country is falling in a dictatorship," Nadal said while commenting on the events happened on Kyiv's central square in the early hours of Saturday.

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.
