Yanukovych does not rule out talks with current Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko provided that Tymoshenko publicly apologizes to him for the accusations.

Regions Party leader Victor Yanukovych does not rule out talks with current Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko provided that Tymoshenko publicly apologizes to him for the accusations she made during her election campaign. "Anyone, who refuses to negotiate with a politician who has millions of voters supporting her, would be stupid. [But] anyone beginning such negotiations without a public apology from Tymoshenko for what she said would have no honor," Yanukovych told Interfax-Ukraine on Feb. 12, when asked whether he would talk to Tymoshenko if she were to approach him.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
