KIEV, February 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of Ukraine’s intransigent oppositionist UDAR party, former international boxing celebrity Vitali Klitschko has appealed to the West “to impose tough international sanctions on the Ukrainian officials,” whom he blamed with “the escalation of the conflict” in this country.

He made the appeal Wednesday as he spoke to reporters after a meeting with Western ambassadors accredited in Ukraine.

“Tough sanctions should be imposed without procrastination on the government officials who are guilty of the escalation of this conflict and the use of force, as well as on the people surrounding (President Viktor) Yanukovich and the country’s top officials,” Klitschko said.

He believes that “high-rank observers” should be dispatched to Ukraine for attending the talks with government officials, pinning down the decisions taken there and acting as guarantors of their implementation.

Klitschko, who along with the two other leaders of the irreconcilable opposition, Arseny Yatsenyuk and Oleg Tyagnibok, has apparently lost much of his power to control the rampaging crowds of radical “protesters”, also said the authorities should remove the law enforcement units from the streets of Kiev and other Ukrainian cities and send them back to the places of permanent stationing.

The oppositionist actions that escalated red-hot Tuesday have left at least twenty-five people dead, including seven to nine policemen.
