The plane of President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko made a emergency landing in Boryspil airport in Kyiv on Thursday.

President’s Press Secretary Iryna Vannikova has disclosed to UNIAN that the emergency landing was made due to technical failures of the plane. The flight lasted for 20 minutes.

At present the President is changing planes and is leaving on a working visit to Lviv.

However, the program of the President’s Lviv visit to Lviv will be reduced.

An informed source has disclosed to UNIAN that Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko came into Boryspil airport when there was the President. Having breached the protocol, she did not approach the President to greet him, but immediately went into the Hall for Official Delegations. Yulia Tymoshenko is leaving on a working visit for Moscow.
