KIEV, January 25, /ITAR-TASS/. Political radicals and crime bosses from abroad are taking part in the ‘actions of protest’ on Kiev’s Independence Square (popularly known as the Maidan), President Viktor Yanukovich of Ukraine said  at a meeting with clerics of various religious denominations and leaders of religious organizations operating in Ukraine.

“Radical events erupted and not only Ukrainians plunged into them,” he said. “There are many people here who came from abroad, who took part in various regional conflicts and who have been placed on international wanted lists.”

Yanukovich clarified that the pundits of political radicalism and crime bosses are hiding in the House of Trade Unions and the building of Kiev mayoralty, which were seized by the rampaging mobs in December.

He also noted that many radicals had been stopped at the points of entry on the Ukrainian territory, at railway stations and in the airports.

“Many radicals and crime masterminds were heading for Ukraine and some of them are also present among those who were detained later but we didn’t make the information public so far,” Yanukovich said.

“It’s important to separate a peaceful Maidan from a radical Maidan, which poses a danger to the entire Ukraine and to all of its citizens today,” he said.
