KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov, who stepped down to create “social and political compromise,” said on Wednesday that as chairman of the Party of Region he would focus on party affairs, the Ukrainian government’s press service told Itar-Tass.

“In my time I was a co-creator of the Party of Regions,” he said. “This is a big and responsible party. It has a huge number of honest and great people. Being a prime minister I had no opportunity to carry out my obligations as the party’s chairman in full. I hope that my knowledge and experience will help develop this important political force in Ukraine.”

“The Party of Regions has always been and will be a stabilizing force seeking the country’s modernization. I will direct all my efforts at this,” Azarov added.

The former prime minister also expressed gratitude to his team for four years of time- and effort-taking work on Ukraine’s modernization.

On Tuesday, Azarov filed his resignation. President Viktor Yanukovich accepted the resignation of the prime minister and his cabinet amid continuing anti-government protests.
