Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 27
By Saba Agayeva - Trend:
Ukraine's territorial integrity is an issue that is not being discussed in the country, Ukrainian Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Alexander Mishchenko said at a press conference on the situation in the country on Feb. 27.
Crimea has not raised the question of secession from Ukraine. This is an artificially newly formed model of confrontation between the east and the west of Ukraine.
"At present, Ukraine has legitimate power and the new government will be approved by the Parliament on Feb. 27," he added. "Yanukovych's policy was aimed to enrich himself and his family. Local authorities, including the embassies have not been funded for the last two to three months."
President Yanukovych was ousted as a result of protests in Ukraine. At present, a new government is being formed and an early election is being prepared.
Unknown individuals have recently seized the buildings of the Supreme Council and the Council of Ministers of Crimea.
"Ukraine has always had good relations with Russia," he added. "Kiev hopes that these will continue in the future and not be changed.
Political forces in Ukraine declare there is an absolutely tolerant attitude to all people and nationalities, Mishchenko added.
