In fact, the radicals began preparing long ago. Moreover, they are preparing to storm Kyiv. They are getting ready and they are ready to fight. In principle, they are ready to overthrow this power. […] If the situation now develops and the assault starts, […] these battalions […] well-armed, with combat equipment, which was provided by their supreme commander-in-chief, are ready to move at any moment.
No evidence of the plans to storm Kyiv by anybody now. During the demonstration on October 17 in Kyiv, protesters called for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to enact anticorruption reforms or step down at a rally organized by Mikheil Saakashvili and other opposition leaders.
