KIEV, February 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The conflict in Ukraine has gone beyond peaceful protest and turned into civil confrontation, head of Dnepropetrovsk Regional Governor Dmitry Kolesnikov told Itar-Tass.
“During the riots in Kiev and several regions of the country, people have died: it’s on the conscience of those who provoke disorders,” Kolesnikov said.
“The conflict can lead to financial and economic instability in the country and now it has an impact on citizens’ well-being,” he said.
“In order to preserve the country, the only way to settle the conflict is through talks,” the governor said, adding: “Radicals’ actions cancelled agreements reached earlier.”
“Peace and calm will prevail in the Dnepropetrovsk region because it is always able to solve problems by peaceful means. Many nationalities live in the region and many industrial and financial groups work here. They can agree and find mutual understanding. There is no social base for radical protest actions here,” he said.
However, Kolesnikov recognized that the situation in the country had an impact on the region. “Specially trained and well organized radicals have made attempts to provoke a chaos while joining peaceful actions. We control the situation and we realize responsibility that is why we didn’t respond to any calls to riots,” the governor said.
