Today Batkivschyna deputies picketed the Council of Europe on EU-Ukraine during the summit in Brussels.

This was announced on his Facebook page by deputyOleksandr Bryhynets.

According to him,first the opposition picketed the European Commission with slogans"Ukrainians Share European Values!" and "Free Yulia!", and thenmoved to the building of the Council of Europe.

"We went over tothe Council of Europe, where the summit will take place. A fewguards came out who did not let us in, and that's understandable,because we do not have any permits," said Bryhynets. "We want todraw the attention of Europeans to the problems of democracy andselective justice that exist in Ukraine. Brussels residents stop toread our posters, take pictures of us, honk."

According to thedeputy, the security personnel defined a place to picket for theUkrainian opposition.

"Not veryconvenient - on the side of the entry where Yanukovych will enter,"noted Bryhynets.

Later, the deputyreported that the police arrived and tried to disperse thepicket.

"To stop ourrally, several dozen police officers arrived. We were not detained,but offered to go picket to another place that is not related tothe Summit and the Council of Europe. Picketing there makes nosense," wrote Bryhynets.

"As we were hintedby local journalists, the police was not called by the security ofthe European Council but by the Embassy of Ukraine in Brussels,"informed the deputy.

"Как намекнули намместные журналисты, полиция на "нас" была вызвана не охраной СоветаЕвропы, а посольством Украины в Брюсселе", - сообщаетдепутат.
