Final chase away of Euromaidan demonstrants could instigate civil war in Ukraine, runaway president thinks. 112 Ukraine TV Channel broadcasts the press conference.

"As for my decision not to sign the order, no matter how difficult it is for me to talk about it today. If we could go back in time, I would not be able to sign it, I could not have raised a hand to do it. Because I understand what the consequences are. At that time, Ukraine were almost split in half, Maidan was supported by about 47%, those who did not support it constituted 46%, it would be the beginning of the civil war, I decided not to risk," he said.
