KIEV, February 08, (ITAR-TASS). The Winter Olympics gives a chance to Ukrainian authorities and opposition to come to terms with each other, lawmaker from Ukrainian ruling Party of Regions Mikhail Chechetov said live on a Ukrainian TV channel.
“When previous Olympic Games started, wars stopped. So, this is Russia that gave a chance to us at this moment of time to agree and begin building an independent, democratic and European country together,” the deputy stated.
Ukrainian Olympic team consists of 43 athletes. President Viktor Yanukovich also arrived in the southern Russian city of Sochi to attend the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, the Ukrainian presidential press service said.
