Referring to the Russian plan, Yatseniuk said: “It is an attempt to destroy Ukrainian statehood, a script which has been written in the Russian Federation, the aim of which is to divide and destroy Ukraine and turn part of Ukraine into a slave territory under the dictatorship of Russia,” he said.

“This is not going to happen,” he said.

“I appeal to the people and the elites of the east. Our common responsibility is to preserve the country and I am sure that no one wants to be under a neighboring country. We have our country. Let’s keep it,” he said.
