Hamish Macdonald has the latest. Reporter: It has been another messy and chaotic might in kiev. This morning, they are reinforcing the front of it, and have control. And digging up the ice from the front footsteps to use for sandbags to reinforce their barricades on between them and the rite police just up here. Now it was pretty violent here overnight. We were right in the thick of it when the protesters were lobbing fire crackers, flaming objects, rocks into the building. And the police were sending water spraying back out as well as some of the rocks they were receiving. Today will be crucial. Over 100,000 people expected on the streets of the capital as well as cities around the country. The president has offered major concessions to the opposition which have not been accepted yet. The choice for this country is being allied with Russia and Vladimir Putin or the west, in particular, Europe. This is crucial for Russia. Vladimir Putin in the spotlight just ahead of the olympic games. Dan. Thanks very much.
