“Activists of Automaidan have met today with the U.S. ambassador,” one of the activists, Oleksiy Hrytsenko, said at a briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday.

“If this government wanted to draw the attention of international public to Automaidan, this goal has been achieved,” Poyarkov said.
The activists also told the press that provocations were being prepared against them, in particular drugs might be planted in their cars. “If this happens, it is a provocation… We do not have people in a state of alcoholic intoxication, we do not have drug users,” Hrytsenko said.
