KIEV, February 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The opposition leaders will bear responsibility for what happened in Kiev this Tuesday, Aleksandr Yefremov, the chairman of the faction of the Party of Regions in Ukrainian parliament, told a briefing on Tuesday.
“The opposition leaders are mistaken if they think they can avoid the responsibility for urging people to come to Kiev, to take up arms and commit crimes,” he said. “They can hardly avoid responsibility. I don’t know in what way they will be punished but history invariably catches up with those who stir up civil confrontation,” Yefremov said.
He stressed that protesters on Tuesday carried fire arms. “Radical protesters at so-called peaceful rallies had fire arms and used them.” Yefremov added.
