Kyiv 08.02.2010 The number of Regions Party leader Victor Yanukovych's supporters rallying outside the building of the Central Election Commission in Kyiv has increased to 3,000, an Interfax-Ukraine reporter has said. Those supporters who attended a rally on Feb. 9 afternoon have been replaced by other participants. The protesters are moving around the square to keep warm, and dancing to music coming from a stage. Some participants in the rally are warming themselves in the underground crossing of the Pechersk subway station, while the others remain inside the subway station itself. Kyiv's main police department told Interfax-Ukraine that 116 buses with 4,150 supporters of the Regions Party had arrived in the Ukrainian capital during the day.
