KIEV, February 01, 22:16 /ITAR-TASS/. Head of the Kharkov administration Gennady Kernes has backed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich’s policy towards settling the crisis by peaceful means.
No administrative building was seized by protesters. “And no seizure will be. Moreover, we’re ready to contribute to freeing buildings of bodies of power in neighbouring regions,” Kernes said at a meeting of the Party of Regions primary organisations on Saturday.
Leader of the Kharkov regional council of war veterans Anatoly Khinevich said veterans living in Kharkov came against neo-Nazism manifestations that can be observed in the Ukrainian capital and other regions.
“By building a civil society we should say ‘stop’ to neo-Nazism and get rid of the aggression inside the society,” he said.
The Party of Regions has taken a decision to set up a public union “Ukrainian Front”, UkrInform News Agency reports.
“The Ukrainian Front is a voluntary civil unification of people - Cossacks, clergymen, invalids who will ensure peace and stability in the country and come against Ukraine’s disintegration,” leader of the Kharkov branch Mikhail Dobkin said.
The priorities of the new organisation are to give information to thousands of compatriots who disagree with the opposition. The Ukrainian Front also seeks to join the negotiations between the authorities and the opposition and do everything possible to free all buildings, squares and streets, which had been seized by the opposition, Dobkin said.
The Ukrainian Front is planning to initiate a referendum, including on the abolishment of deputies’ immunity and the reduction of deputies till 300 people. “We’ll form new structures in compliance with law. A provisional council will deal with their activities,” he said.
“We’ll convince those who went on the war path to ensure peace and stability. We’ll use legal methods without unlawful means. But if it necessary, we’ll resist to those who come against peace and favour Ukraine’s disintegration,” Dobkin said.
The key purpose of the Ukrainian Front is to ensure law and order in the country, deputy head of the Party of Regions faction Oleg Tsarev told Itar-Tass.
“We’re creating the organisation in order to prevent a chaos from spreading all round the country,” Tsarev said.
Ukrainian parliamentarian Vladimir Oleynik told Itar-Tass that the creation of the Ukrainian Front “is a response to the events in Kiev and regions where the attempts are being made to change the constitutional system”.
“This is the response of Ukraine, which is against nationalist and radical forces,” Oleynik said.
