Victor Yushchenko’s interview on Thursday with Italy’s Rai Uno focused on how to resolve the ongoing political crisis in Ukraine. According to the President`s press-office, he said a snap poll was the best way to end the impasse.  

“Ukraine is approaching a political solution to the crisis. We will do it through democratic and nonviolent means and in a way that will once again demonstrate that Ukraine is a democratic state that has European prospects and remembers its European history,” he said.

Rai Uno is the primary television station of RAI, the national public service broadcaster, and the most watched television channel in Italy.
