AutoMaidan names Klitschko the single candidate representing the resistance campaign

UDAR leader Vitaliy Klitschko is the single candidate of the resistance campaign, a post on AutoMaidan’s official Facebook account says

“Only one leader was with people on the frontline at the most difficult and dangerous time for the Ukrainian people! He was Vitaliy Klitschko! Real actions at the most urgent moment are worth far more than talks, plans and strategies. The AutoMaidan has chosen the single candidate representing the resistance campaign and is ready to support him in the struggle against lawlessness that has penetrated all branches of government, the struggle for the establishment of a lawful State with human values. From now on, Vitaliy Klitschko is the leader of resistance to us,” AutoMaidan activists claim.

AutoMaidan leader Dmytro Bulatov said at the yesterday’s rally that the opposition must choose a single leader. Meanwhile, Arseniy Yatseniuk said at the rally: “We have a leader here. And I will tell you who this leader is – it is the Ukrainian people. Our unity, our joint struggle is the guarantee of our real Ukrainian leadership,” he told the crowd chanting “Leader, leader!”. “We must act with you like a real European powerful and wise opposition. We know what to do and how to bring forth a new democratic government. And we know the main way to do this: we are together, we are united, we act only peacefully. We act in a coordinated manner and enforce the key article of the Ukrainian Constitution – power in Ukraine belongs to people.”

Later, as protesters started clashes on Hrushevskoho Street in an attempt to break through the police line to the government premises, Vitaliy Klitschko called on protesters to not provoke Berkut, the riot police. The protesters booed him.
