UPD: 28/03/2014 Yanukovych casts a vote from Russia: Calls for separatist referendums in every region of Ukraine
Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in his address to the Ukrainian people called for holding a referendum on the status of each region within Ukraine.
"As president, with you thoughts and soul, I call on every sensible citizen of Ukraine - do not let the impostors use you! Demand a referendum on determining the status of each region within Ukraine," Yanukovych said in an address to the Ukrainian people at the disposal of ITAR-TASS .
Yanukovych turned to the already familiar rhetoric of his Russian appeals and again recalled the "armed coup" and "terrorists" in Kiev.
"It is quite logical that the protest that flares up in the south and east of Ukraine is a natural reaction of a densely populated industrial region to an armed coup d'état," he said.
"Pretenders do not have the mandate of confidence of the Ukrainian people, they do not have the right to deprive every citizen of Ukraine of his right to vote, by introducing unconstitutional changes in legislation, including presidential elections," Yanukovych stressed.
"Anarchy, what is happening on the streets of our country, has nothing to do with democracy," he said.
"Let at least one Western power call democratic steps taken by the current" managers. "I do not think that any high-ranking European official publicly acknowledges that executions and robberies in the streets of their states are normal, when terrorists are called activists who are allowed to kill and rob with impunity people, "- said Yanukovych.
Only an all-Ukrainian referendum, rather than an emergency early presidential election, can largely stabilize the political situation and preserve the sovereignty and integrity of Ukraine, Yanukovych believes.
The unconstitutional changes introduced in the legislation, including the presidential elections in Ukraine, "exclude the possibility of fair elections if they did not take place," he said.
Also, Yanukovych, in his address to the Congress of the Party of Regions, asked to remove from him the powers of the honorary chairman of the party and to exclude him from it.
