KIEV, March 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine has opened another criminal case against Viktor Yanukovych for calls to hold referendums for defining the status of each region within Ukraine, the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office reported on Friday.
The report says Yanukovych in another address to the Ukrainian people on Friday described the present authorities in Ukraine as illegal and urged demands for a referendum to define the status of each region within Ukraine.
