MOSCOW, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Mikhail Margelov said he was sure that all signs of a coup d’etat attempt could be observed in Ukraine.
Commenting on the development of the situation in Ukraine, Margelov said, “Maidan voted for the opposition withdraw from the talks (with the country’s authorities). In other words Maidan insists on stepping up confrontation.”
At the same time, the legislator said the administration’s buildings are being seized in several Ukrainian cities. A parallel structure - People’s Council of Ukraine - is being created. “Militants of different tones appear among protesters. Militants declared readiness for new battles with the power. The opposition lost control over them,” Margelov said.
“So, the talks have not brought conciliation: protest actions continue. The weekend is coming when protesters step up the actions,” he said.
However, Margelov said, “President Viktor Yanukovich has enough forces to curb protesters’ attempts. The talks should yield practical results as the situation has gone it too far.”
“In my view, the opposition shouldn’t declare an ultimatum,” Margelov said, adding “The situation in Ukraine is that time presses.
