Former US Vice President Joe Biden remembered a phone call to former President Viktor Yanukovych, after which he fled from Ukraine. This Biden wrote in his memoirs, said "Gromadske radio."

"I warned him (Yanukovych, - Ed.) for several months that he should behave more reservedly towards Ukrainian citizens, but that night after three months of demonstrations I told him that everything was over: he had to withdraw his people and go", Biden noted.

According to the politician, Yanukovych fled the next day, and control over the government temporarily "fell into the hands of the young patriot Arseniy Yatsenyuk."

The memoirs of Joe Biden, called "Promise me, Dad," were released in December. He devoted a book to his child, who died of brain cancer in 2015. In the book, the former vice-president talks about his work in the US administration and, in particular, about the role in the events in Ukraine.
