Attempts to set Ukraine at loggerheads with Russia to fail - Yanukovich
Yanukovych justifies his pro-Russian course
The attempts of certain politicians to set Ukraine at loggerheads with Russia will fail, leader of the Party of Regions Viktor Yanukovich is certain, according to Itar-Tass. “The Ukrainians feel no threat coming from Russia. Speaking about such a threat, I think, are only those people that were cloned by the “orange” revolution experiment. I don’t know how to call them – mutants, monsters. The rest normal people want to live in peace with their neighbours,” Yanukovich said on Thursday evening on a programme of the Lugansk regional television.
He called political technologies the statements of a number of politicians on the possible recurrence of the “Russian-Georgian” scenario in the Crimea. “The Crimea had never had frozen conflicts in the past, at present and will have no such conflicts in the future. Unfortunately, attempts to stir up enmity between Ukraine and Russia are being made at present, but they are also the next technologies,” believes the leaders of the Party of Regions.
According to him, political technologies “have become frequent in Ukraine after the break-up of the coalition of democratic forces.” “As soon as the “orange power” broke up, strangers have become frequent visitors applying foreign technologies. They want to manipulate the Ukrainian people the same as in 2004,” Yanukovich said.
