However, Yanukvych on Dec. 13 at a roundtable of national
leaders publicly pledged no force would be used and other EuroMaidan leaders,
such as former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko, downplayed the threat of
violence. 

The opposition warnings are coming from Batkivshchyna
leader Arseniy Yatseniuk and Ihor Miroshnychenko, a high-ranking lawmaker in
Svoboda Party. 

The gloomy warnings intensify an already highly charged
atmosphere which will play out on the streets at noon on Dec. 15 with
dueling rallies. Besides the EuroMaidan anti-government protests, Yanukovych
supporters plan to hold a counter-rally some 200 meters away on European Square
also on Kyiv’s main Khreshchatyk Street.
