They want to turn Maidan into an “Idea Generator,” only leaving representatives of artistic circles there.
The party “Right Sector” intends to put Maidan Nezalezhnosti in order – remove the barricades and unblock the roads in the centre of Kyiv. This was stated by member of the political council of the party, head of the Kyiv organisation “Social-National Assembly” (Right Sector – East) Igor Krivoruchko, reports “Interfax.”
At the press conference in Kyiv this Friday Krivoruchko stated that Maidan cannot be let go neither physically nor morally, meanwhile is it “gradually degrading, sinking to the level of Anti-Maidan.”
“Now, when walking down Maidan, one can smell urine, drunk people in camouflage can be seen, which participate in conflicts or demonstrate behaviour unbecoming of a Maidaner,” said Krivoruchko.
In light of this, “Right Sector” proposes to modernise the Maidan space, “turning it from a residential place into a location for generating new ideas.”
“Maidan now has to generate new ideas, and also to develop a feeling of patriotism within the Ukrainians, propagate moral values, a healthy lifestyle and other positive values,” thinks the activist.
They will start removing all military tents, which have been rendered unbecoming with time, and instead of them several modern tents of the “sphere” type will be established, in which journalists and other creative people, such as artists, writers, photographers, IT-specialists and others, will be able to work.
Barricades will be removed from the centre of Kyiv. “Now there is no sense in the barricades, we already have an elected government, there are no Russian armed forces here. Mobilisation-information points may be placed at the entrances to Maidan, at the most, and on Maidan itself – a swift reactive group, which Right Sector has been during the revolution,” said he.
The roads should be unblocked, and “the majority of the people living in the tents sent to the East to defend the country.”
The building of the Kyiv City Administration, according to him, has to be given to the Kyiv government and used according to its primary purpose – as an administrative building.
Krivoruchko admitted that not all Maidaners are ready for the disbandment.
“There are such people – and they are called moochers. Many of those currently living in tents were not here during the revolution and are now for some reason considered Maidaners and allow themselves to express their position. They don’t have such moral rights,” said the Right Sector representative.
He stated that at the moment consultation and talks with all Maidan organisation are underway, the decision will be announced on Sunday.
