WARSAW, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych is to blame for encroaching on the agreement on the solution of the political crisis in the country that was signed in Kiev February 21 in the presence of Polish and German Foreign Ministers who acted as guarantors, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said Friday.
He claimed that according to the information available to him, Yanukovych was himself to blame, since the agreement envisioned reverting to the old Constitution of the country within 48 hours after the signing.
A voting was to be held and it was held, and then the signing of the document that did not take place, which means Yanukovich violated the agreement, Polish media quoted Sikorski.
The minister also indicated that were he in Yanukovich’s shoes now, he would not bother much about what he was supposed to tell to the prosecutors and to the court.
Speaking earlier in the day at a news conference in Russia’s southern city of Rostov-on-Don, Viktor Yanukovych apportioned all blame for the disruption of agreements to the irreconcilable opposition, far-right radical chieftains on the Maidan and the Western politicians who connived at the radical nationalistic oppositionists’ outrage.
