ROSTOV-ON-DON, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine is “moving towards bankruptcy” but the Ukrainian people “will never submit to yield to dictation especially on the part of nationalists, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich told journalists in Rostov-on-Don late Sunday.
He noted that dialogue was more important for Ukraine at the moment than early elections.
Yanukovich asked Ukrainian army not to obey “criminal orders” to shoot at the Ukrainian people issued by the new authorities and warned that the latter would face criminal charges for everything that was happening in Ukraine.
Yanukovich blamed the United States for being directly involved in the events in Ukraine.
“It carries its share of responsibility for unleashing a civil war in that country,” Yanukovich stressed.
