Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights Janez Lenarcic has called the demand of the Ukrainian authorities that the administrative buildings seized by demonstrators in Kyiv be vacated lawful.

He said at a press briefing in Kyiv on Friday during a meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council that the demand was fully consistent with the acceptable restrictions on the freedom of assembly, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

Lenarcic stressed that these buildings are intended for specific purpose. "These buildings are not intended specifically for public assemblies," he said, noting that there is enough space for this purpose in Kyiv, in particular in Maidan Nezalezhnosti.
