Fugitive ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych told that Russian Rostov reminds him of Donetsk – there are lots of Ukrainians and many say hello to him, as he said during a press-conference, broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
“Sometimes I go out on the streets, and it seems like I am walking around Donetsk, as people say 'hello' to me all the time. This is Rostov today. Indeed, Ukrainians are everywhere in Rostov,” Yanukovych said.
Therefore, he proposed to open polling stations in Russia during presidential elections in Ukraine.
“Why not open polling stations? Why not be kind to people? They are concerned about the future of their children, they dream of coming back to their motherland. When you talk to them, it’s impossible to talk for a long time, because you start crying. People are very emotional about that. I have heard a lot: accusations, wishes, and a lot of different things,” he said.
