Asked whether he would agree to a cross interrogation with Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Petro Poroshenko and other current high-ranking officials, involved in those events, Yanukovych: "Conventionally speaking, I would like to meet in the same format as it was at the negotiation table… with those who sat next to me at the time... so that we could also ask each other questions and look into each other’s eyes. This would be right. I wonder if it’s possible but it would be right," said Yanukovych.

The very procedure of the referendum has not been worked out in Ukraine, it has not been started. And if I only hinted that I wanted to do a referendum, it would mean far worse things than we have done, suspending the process of European integration. We have not abandoned it... The referendum would mean the delay of the European integration process," said Yanukovych.
