SIMFEROPOL, February 20, /ITAR-TASS/. President Viktor Yanukovich of Ukraine should take tough measures against extremist groupings and the forces of law and order should bring the leaders of the country’s irreconcilable opposition to justice, the presidium of the Sevastopol town hall said Tuesday at a session devoted to the overall situation in this country.
“Nowhere in the civilized world the authorities will ever hold talks with terrorists or extremists,” the statement says. “We call on the President of Ukraine to enforce urgent and tough measures to bring the situation back to normal and to restore law and order in full.”
“The militants from neo-Nazi organizations used the time, which the government spent holding talks and tapping the ways out of the political, to brace themselves for violent actions,” the presidium of the Sevastopol town hall said.
“The utilization of firearms and Molotov cocktail bottles by the so-called ‘peaceful protesters’ is a clear sign of terrorism,” it said. “The striving of extremist groupings to grab state power in the country by hook or by crook grew over into a bloodletting in Kiev.”
The town hall also said that “opposition leaders do not control the situation and they should be brought to justice for fanning the armed standoff,” the town hall said.
