About 300 Ukrainian government staff members have gathered near the Council of Ministers building in an attempt to go to work
The building is still being blocked by the opposition and the staff members cannot enter. Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers Anatoly Tolstukhov, who has been in the building since the protest began, told the protesters, "Esteemed representatives of so-called democracy, do not impede the people's work." Drums and shouts of "disgrace" drowned out Mr. Tolstukhov's words. At a rally of his supporters on Sunday, Viktor Yushchenko said government and administrative buildings would stop being blocked only after the opposition's demands were met. Mr. Yushchenko accused the authorities of not fulfilling their obligations or the agreements reached in talks with the opposition. He said the opposition "is demanding three specific things from President Kuchma: de-facto dismissal of Yanukovich's government, dismissal of the current Central Elections Commission, and the adoption of amendments to the election law that make it impossible to rig elections. "We have a short time, our demands must be met within the next three days." He called on his supporters to go to parliament and the presidential palace to make them fulfill these demands
