Opposition leaders call for people to join self-defence teams to protect EuroMaidan

At the the 12th consecutive Sunday rally, political opposition leaders on February 9 urged people to join EuroMaidan self-defence teams to protect the anti-government demonstrations and tent city on Independence Square from police attacks.

Opposition leader Vitali Klitschko said people can sign up for the self-defence teams through his Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform party, while opposition leader Yuriy Lutsenko – the nation’s former top cop – called on people to grab baseball bats and helmets to protect the protests that began on November 21 and seek to oust President Viktor Yanukovych.
