ROSTOV-ON-DON, April 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych has addressed on Monday the current Kiev authorities in written regarding the sharply deteriorating situation in the country’s south-east.
“Using arms in the east of Ukraine will not change anything now. People are intimidated. You have called terrorists millions of people. People don’t have any other choice but to fight for their rights, their lives and their children,” the address says.
After these first tasks are adopted and fulfilled, Yanukovych believes to be necessary to schedule and hold referendums in Ukraine’s regions on the issue of federalization and powers of regions. Then, it is needed to schedule and hold a referendum on the presidential or parliamentary form of authority in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian president says that after all that, it is necessary to carry out a constitutional reform, and then the parliamentary and presidential elections. In addition, Yanukovych suggested to create a system of international control over the referendums and elections, and to provide the broadest access for observers.
“These five tasks need to be solved. This is the only path to preserving Ukraine’s integrity,” the statement reads. “If it will not be done, our country may face disintegration, and unlikely a peaceful one. More likely it may occur through a civil war. Come to senses! You are pushing one brother against another, and others will make benefits out of this disaster.”
“I’m addressing once again the servicemen and special forces staff. They want to use you, want you to spill blood and then to make you guilty of that. You understand by yourselves that this will be so. Don’t cross the line! Don’t fulfill wrongful orders!” Yanukovych urged. “I call on all Ukrainian citizens to preserve our peculiar tolerance, calmness, and mutual respect, in whatever region we live. We must and we’ll be able to save our beloved Ukraine.”
