"He won't ask for asylum. He will continue his current activity," the source said adding that the new threat of being taken to prison was nothing compared with the continuing risks to his life.Oleh Tsariov had been running for the post of the Ukrainian president, but hewithdrew from the election campaignon his own free will. Tsariov also called on the other presidential candidates, whose basic electorate was concentrated in the south-east of Ukraine, to quit the presidential race. "The election being held amidst the civil war should be boycotted," Tsariov said then.
Tsariov in an interview with Rossiya24 TV channel on May 25 refused to recognize the presidential election in Ukraine as legitimate and called into question the organization of the elections. "There is no talk about the election being legitimate. Donbass, Luhansk and Donetsk had not voted for any presidential candidate. Poroshenko was supported by voters mostly in the west of Ukraine. Therefore, we insist that it was a choice only of half of Ukraine," Tsariov told Vesti 24 TV channel.
