Yanukovych Stands For Referendum On Status Of Donbas If Ukrainian Authorities Fail To Implement Minsk Agreements

Former president Viktor Yanukovych stands for a referendum on a status of Donbas in case the Ukrainian authorities do not implement the Minsk agreements.

This is said in statements of the Russian news agencies TASS and RIA Novosti citing a letter of Yanukovych to world leaders made public during his interview for a group of Russian and Ukrainian journalists, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The letter is addressed to the Presidents of Russia, the United States, France, Poland, the President of Germany and the Chancellor of Germany, leaders of the Council of Europe, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

In his letter Yanukovych gives his vision of the events of the Euromaidan and offers measures on resolution of the Ukrainian crisis.

In particular, Yanukovych wants representatives of the so-called 'republics of Donbas' to be included in the negotiations in the Normandy Format (Ukraine, Germany, France, and Russia).

Yanukovych says, that the events of the Euromaidan require objective legal assessments in Ukraine and internationally.

He urges world leaders to create a special commission of the Council of Europe to supervise investigations into crimes committed during the Euromaidan (mass protest actions in November 2013 - February 2014).

Yanukovych says, that the events of the Euromaidan were supported by western countries and the United States.

According to a statement of TASS, in a letter to U.S. President Donald Trump Yanukovych urges him to provide legal and political assessments of actions of U.S. officials during the events of the Euromaidan.

Yanukovych believes that only persistent political and legal pressure on Ukrainian authorities aiming at implementation of the Minsk agreements can lead to qualitative changes in the social and political life of Ukraine.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine intends to transfer to a court the high treason case against Yanukovych.
