KIEV (Reuters) - Supporters of Ukraine's next president Viktor Yushchenko lifted a blockade of the government building Wednesday after receiving assurances that Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich would not try to enter the building.
"We have received assurances that Viktor Yanukovich will not come to this building today or tomorrow," Taras Stetskiv, a key ally of Yushchenko, told reporters.
Cabinet secretary Anatoly Tolstoukhov had earlier said the cabinet would not meet at its headquarters after demonstrators had massed outside. Yanukovich has refused to concede defeat in Sunday's election despite preliminary returns showing Yushchenko has won the contest.
