The Popular Rukh of Ukraine has called on political forces to unite and use all legal means to prevent a concentration of power in the hands of Region Party leader Victor Yanukovych's team.
"The Popular Rukh of Ukraine has announced that there has been an attack by anti-Ukrainian forces in our state. Rukh is convinced that all possible legal means should be used to prevent the concentration of power in the hands of anti-state politician Yanukovych and his pro-Moscow retinue. We urge all sound political forces to unite in parliament and in society," the party's political council said in a statement issued on Feb. 10.
The Popular Rukh of Ukraine blamed President Victor Yuschenko and "his bankrupt party" for the decision not to support either of the presidential candidates, which helped persuade 4.36% of the electorate to vote against both candidates, providing an advantage to Yanukovych.
