Ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych called his stay on the territory of Russia the most difficult years of his life. He said this at a press conference, which was broadcast by "112 Ukraine" TV channel.
"I did not leave Russia. Such situation, in which I live, in isolation from the motherland… These are probably the most difficult years of my life. Not only for me, but for my family, for my relatives. But also for that part of Ukraine, who are my supporters,” he said.
Ex-president also claimed that Yuriy Lutsenko, the current Prosecutor General of Ukraine, pressured the court with his presence today.
"You see the attempts to block the process. Today, Lutsenko attempted to put pressure on the court. I do not want to hang any labels on anybody, but I have a great anxiety. However, there is hope..." he said.
As it was reported earlier, the interrogation of Yanukovych was concluded, he also gave a press-conference afterwards.
Yanukovych resides in Russian Federation since February 2014, when he illegally fled from Ukraine.
