Writer explains public hate toward ex-PM Yatsenyuk
Arseniy Yatsenyuk's moves when he was prime minister were correct since he has won general hatred on the part of society, Ukrainian writer and translator Yuriy Andrukhovych said, speaking at a TV show on ZIK.
The anchor noted that the writer once sympathized with Arseniy Yatsenyuk and said that he was the most “exotic” prime minister in Ukraine.
"I do not think that Yatsenyuk’s face is now forgotten. I'm almost sure that some kind of a return will take place. It seems to me that at that stage he has fulfilled all that the prime minister had to do in a crisis situation," Andrukhovych said.

"Public hatred is a response to unpopular steps that were necessary and that somebody had to take. After all, as they say, a reformer is successful only when people stop saying hi and walk away to the other side of the street," Andrukhovych said.
