KIEV, January 26, 22:51 /ITAR-TASS/. It’s high time Ukraine’s opposition leaders admit that the so-called Euromaidan [a newly coined term for ongoing protests and civil unrest in Ukraine, which began on the night of 21 November 2013 in Kiev’s Independence Square, or Maidan, with very large public protests demanding closer European integration] has gone out of their control, Vladimir Saldo, a member of the Ukrainian parliament with the ruling Party of Regions, told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“They (the opposition leaders) should open their eyes to see that the radicalization of protest and the outspoken fascism of the protesters is the road to nowhere,” he said. “The president and other representatives of the authorities are keeping their promises. And in response, they are receiving Molotov cocktails, physical intimidation. Irreparable damage is being done buildings in the capital city, damage to the entire Ukraine.”
He said he hoped the political crisis in Ukraine would soon be exhausted. “The head of state has made a step to meet the opposition halfway. He has offered concrete steps on the peaceful settlement of the political crisis,” Saldo noted. “If the opposition leaders are really responsible for their actions and for people who believe them, they must show prudence and take a step towards Ukraine and its all citizens, for which ends they should find a common language with Maidan radicals.
