PRAGUE, January 3. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk has not wielded positive influence on the settlement of conflict in Ukraine’s southeast and is pushing forward to a coercive resolution of the crisis situation, Czech President Milos Zeman said in an interview with Pravo daily on Saturday.
“Judging by some statements made by Prime Minister /Arseny/ Yatsenyuk, I think he is, most likely, the prime minister of war as he does not want a peaceful solution, when the whole European Commission recommends seeking and achieving it,” Zeman said.
“He wishes to solve the problem by force,” the Czech president said.
Besides, he contrasted Yatsenyuk’s stance with that of Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko who preferred resolving contradictions by looking for compromises and at the negotiating table.
Zeman refuted arguments from “badly informed citizens” that a democratic revolution had brought about former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich’s dislodging in February 2014.
“Maidan was nowhere close to a democratic revolution,” the Czech president said. “A civil war is underway in Ukraine.”.
