“The war in the Donbass is a very complex and difficult issue. When a coup occured, when on February 22, in violation of all laws with the Constitution of Ukraine the decisions were taken and the government was overthrown, under the pressure of “Maidan” MPs voted as it was beneficial”, said ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.

 

“Those who submitted proposals to the Ukrainian government to resolve the conflict in Donbass peacefully weren’t be heard. Namely then it was decided to start the so-called “anti-terrorist operation”, he added.

 

On December 15, a court hearing on the case of recognition the fact of the state coup in Kiev in 2014, took place in Moscow.
