KIEV Dec 4 (Reuters) - Ukraine's prime minister warned protesters blockading government buildings on Wednesday that anybody guilty of violating the constitution and laws would face punishment.

In a live broadcast from a regular cabinet meeting, Mykola Azarov also said the government had demonstrated tolerance and a readiness for dialogue during the protests and he urged all political forces to avoid a further escalation of tension.

"Everybody must realise that the country's constitution and laws are in force, nobody is allowed to violate them... All those who are guilty of illegal acts will answer for them," Azarov said.
