KIEV, December 02, 20:40 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said the situation in the country had become uncontrollable due to mass protests in Kiev and other cities.
“The situation has changed. On the one hand, we do not relieve law enforcement agencies from responsibility, but on the other hand, the politicians who joined this action have radicalised the situation dramatically. Mass events developed into uncontrollable events, or to be more precise, into events controlled by certain political forces,” Azarov said at a meeting with EU and U.S. ambassadors in Kiev on Monday, December 2.
He said the opposition was preparing to seize the Verkhovna Rada (parliament).
“We know that plans to seize the Verkhovna Rada are being prepared [by the opposition]. What do you think, can we remain indifferent? Of course not. Do you really think that we have no possibilities to put things in order? Ten minutes and there is free passage to the Cabinet of Ministers. But we are not doing that, we are refraining from using force,” the prime minister said.
