PRAGUE, March 19. /TASS/. Former Czech President Vaclav Klaus in an interview published at ceskatelevize.cz website on Thursday said Russia bears no responsibility for the crisis in Ukraine, which should resolve its problems independently.
Klaus said the crisis didn't come to Ukraine from the outside. According to him, Ukraine is "a country that failed to implement the transition period from totalitarism."
The ex-leader noted that Ukraine was not ready to answer the question whether it wanted to move eastward or westward.
"The European Union and Russia should have backtracked and allowed Ukraine to solve its problems independently."
Klaus said the West was to blame for the growing crisis in Ukraine, which had fallen apart after the Maidan events supported by the US and European Union.
