KIEV, February 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s acting Justice Minister Elena Lukash has placed entire responsibility for a new round of confrontation in Kiev on the leaders of the Ukrainian opposition.
“Today, opposition leaders bear personal responsibility for a new spiral of confrontation. Their actions have imperiled civil peace and Ukraine’s future,” she said in a statement posted on the presidential website on Tuesday.
“The protest, which was announced as a peace action only yesterday, has grown into open armed clashes with extremists today,” she stressed. “The opposition has ignored the calls of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich and the leaders of the European Union and the United States for a peaceful settlement of the conflict.
