Regions Party Leader Viktor Yanukovych, who is running for Ukraine's president, has said that many politicians, including another two presidential candidates - banker Sergiy Tigipko and Front for Change initiative leader Arseniy Yatseniuk - will find their niche in public service. "I believe that after the presidential elections Tigipko and Yatseniuk and many other politicians will take decent jobs in the civil service. There will be enough work for everybody," he said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine on Wednesday.

Yanukovych said that he respects all Ukrainian politicians.

"I have never offended anyone. This is my principle," he said.
