Previous Ukrainian leader: Ukrainians cannot decide between peace, war

(MENAFN) Previous Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovych has urged his counterparts Ukrainians to choose if they wanted to go back to peaceful life or carry on facing wars.

In a written speech to the Ukrainian people that was shared on Facebook by his press secretary on Tuesday, the previous Ukrainian leader stated that “an adequate assessment of the situation” in the nation was needed today more than ever.

“Ukrainian citizens themselves must make a choice — should they fight ‘until the last Ukrainian’, or save what is left? It is important to give everyone who has constructive ideas the opportunity to speak and to give peace a chance,” he added, noting that this would save many Ukrainian lives.

Yanukovych further called the incumbent Ukrainian experts inexperienced, opportunistic, and untrustworthy. “There can be no talk of any unconditional trust in [the Ukrainian government] … But the constant lies by the authorities only accelerate their downfall, exacerbate the situation … They threaten the future of the Ukraine that we know and love,” he went on.

The previous leader then called Kiev to show tolerance to Ukrainians that do not share its opinions. “The leadership of Ukraine must, before it is too late, stop dividing Ukrainians into the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ones,” he underlined.
