Ukraine presidential elections caused deaths, suffering — Yanukovych

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych says after the elections people saw a blood bath instead of peace and stability

ROSTOV-ON-DON, May 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine presidential elections caused deaths, suffering, said former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

People expected peace from the early presidential elections in Ukraine, Yanukovych said. “The majority of Ukrainians thought that the new authorities will overcome the political crisis and bring about peaceful times. The people are tired of confrontation that led to a full-scale war,” he noted.

“Finally, it happened. The president of Ukraine has been elected. The surprise was replaced with shock. Instead of stability and peace people saw a blood bath,” Yanukovych said.
