Kiev: Amid continuing violent clashes between the police and anti-government in Kiev, Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovych has issued a warning to protesters.
The Ukrainian President has issued the warning fearing instability in the country, as per news reports.
Fresh clashes took place on Monday in which several people have been injured.
Yanukovych reportedly had said that a committee comprising government and presidential administration members will be set up to hold discussion with the opposition members on Monday.
The decision to form the committee came after thousands of protesters held a rally in defiance of the news legislation which was passed by the Parliament with an aim to suppress anti-government protests.
According to the legislation, blockade of public buildings will be a punishable offence. It also states that action will be taken against protesters wearing helmet or masks, as per news report.
The Ukrainian government has been facing protest after Yanukovych decided to scrap the agreements with the EU.
