KIEV, February 22, 3:08 /ITAR-TASS/. - Head of the Ukrainian president’s administration Andrei Klyuyev said that the key task at the moment was to preserve the country’s unity and integrity, the press service of the presidential administration said on Friday, 21th of February.
“I think that tensions in society will gradually subside,” the press service quoted him as saying. “I cannot say it is going to happen overnight. But I hope all the processes will go back to the framework of the law. As a matter of fact, centrifugal processes that could tear the integrity of our state started both in Ukraine’s western regions, and in its central and southeastern regions. I hope such processes will gradually calm down when this agreement [on the settlement of the political crisis] is implemented.”
“The most important thing for us is the country’s integrity. We must spare no effort to prevent such threats,” he stressed.
