WASHINGTRON, February 27, (ITAR-TASS). U.S. hopes Russia will refrain from provocations against Ukraine and will display transparency, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday, adding that this would respond to Russia’s own interests.
He also said the White House did not consider Viktor Yanukovich to be President of Ukraine any longer, since Yanukovich had shirked his presidential duties and left Kiev, thus undermining his own legitimacy.
Carney recalled the White House had pledged support to the decisions of Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, as regards the appointment of an interim president and the formation of a new cabinet.
