KIEV, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich has closed the door to any compromises for which some politicians and public figures called after the authorities’ another attempt to disperse pro-European Union protesters on Kiev’s central square, leader of Ukraine’s opposition Udar (Punch) party, boxing champion Vitali Klitschko on Wednesday.
“It will be strange to hear about some compromises like “technical governments” or constitutional amendments,” Klitschko said. “All this will be manipulation and the game in favour of Yanukovich and his power. The main evil is Yanukovich himself and the rest is what he has created.”
The opposition sought “a regime change and punishment of all those responsible for violent dispersal of protesters on Kiev’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti (central square) and provocations on Bankovaya Street (near the presidential administration),” he said.
“I say with responsibility that together with citizens who have expressed their no confidence in and no respect for Yanukovich nationwide I will do my utmost to change this regime as soon as possible,” Klitschko said.
