ODESSA, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Leaflets calling on Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to return and restore law and order in Ukraine appeared in public places in Odessa on Wednesday. Many people found them in their postboxes.
Thousands of people marched through the streets of Odessa last Sunday to protest against political repression and usurpation of power in Ukraine. They chanted slogans urging President Yanukovych to return and protect Ukrainians from fascists.
Rostislav Barda, the leader of the Resistance public organization and one of the march’s organizers, told ITAR-TASS that Viktor Yanukovych, despite all the mistakes he had made, was Ukraine’s legitimate president according to the Constitution.
“Therefore, he must return to the country and fulfill his duty of protecting his people from those who have illegally seized power in Ukraine and have launched reprisals against Ukrainians,” the activist said.
