Viktor Yanukovych, who has declared his legitimacy as Ukraine's president, said he had not had any contacts with representatives of the Western countries, which acted as guarantors of the settlement agreement in Ukraine, but this issue has not yet been removed from the agenda, according to RIA Novosti.

"I would like to hear from those signatories, who actually acted as guarantors. I have not heard any suggestions, and we had no contacts, neither have we had phone contact, nor did I see a call or desire in the mass media to talk on the phone at least," Yanukovych said at a press conference on Friday. "But I believe that it is not enough. It is necessary to meet and discuss. This issue is not removed from the agenda."

The settlement agreement in Ukraine was signed on Feb. 21 by the Ukrainian authorities and opposition.

European Union's representatives (Foreign Minister of France, Germany and Poland) participated in the negotiations, which preceded the agreement's signing.
