ROSTOV ON DON, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych said he considered the Verkhovna Rada’s impeachment a “performance”.
“If the incumbent president does not resign under the Constitution, if he is alive (and I’m alive as you see) and if an impeachment is not declared in the parliament, he is president,” Yanukovich told a news conference.
“Thus, I cannot recognize the impeachment, which was declared by the parliament. I consider it the performance. I never recognize it,” the Ukrainian president said.
Yanukovych said he did not recognise and had not recognised the laws that the parliament “approved by violence”.
“I’ve never signed them. So these laws have not been approved,” he said.
