KIEV, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Andriy Klyuyev, the Ukrainian president’s administration chief, told the Ukrainian Independent Information Agency (UNIAN) on Tuesday that he had met Ukraine’s former president, Viktor Yanukovych, in the Crimea on February 23 and handed in his resignation.
“He was actually debarred from making any decisions on settling the conflict and had no idea that a scenario of resolving the crisis by force was in the making,” Klyuyev said, commenting on Yanukovych’s actions.
“I am sure that investigators will study all the circumstances of those tragic events, and the culprits will face punishment,” Klyuyev said.
