MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Ukraine’s former prime minister Mykola Azarov has announced Monday establishing Ukraine Salvation Committee.
"We state that Committees of Salvation of Ukraine have been established and are working in Ukraine," Azarov told a press conference in Moscow. "We ask all citizens, political parties, labor union and social movements to unite and restore order in our home by joint efforts," he added.
Azarov said that he cannot name all members of the newly-established committee because "they live and work in Ukraine, and this is very dangerous." "Time will come when we will introduce them, first of all to the Ukrainian people. I can assure you that they are patriots who have no ties neither with current authorities nor with former authorities," Azarov stressed.
"We know who carried out the coup in Ukraine, who refused to hold dialogue with their own people. [Ukraine] Salvation Committee thinks that it is impossible to restore accord without changing the political leadership. Salvation Committee is unfortunately set up outside of Ukraine, but I am sure that we will come back. We address the Ukrainian people — we are ready to assume responsibility for restoring Ukraine’s development," he noted.
Azarov noted that former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and people from his circle will not join the Committee for Salvation of Ukraine.
"When the committee was discussing this issue, we’ve decided that those who had close ties with Ukraine’s former president should not join the committee," Azarov said.
Meanwhile, Igor Markov, a former Verkhovna Rada deputy, said that Yanukovich "was to blame to less than the current regime."
according to the ex-official, Europe is becoming gradually disappointed in Ukraine’s current authorities.
"Europe begins to understand that it bet on wrong [people]. They wanted to get a European government, but instead they got pro-Fascist [government] that is also absolutely incompetent in economic issues," Azarov said.
Azarov pointed out that, sooner or later, not only Ukrainian people, but also Europe and US as well will ask a question: "What can be done with this regime?"
