“I was very disappointed
with what I saw in the news,” said the 32-year-old lawmaker. 

“Everybody can defend their
point of view in any legal way. But there is no way to explain the fact that
after student leaders announced that the rally is postponed and the stage was
dismantled, the activists who possibly stayed there behaved not at all
peacefully in relation to law enforcement officers,” Yanukovych Jr. said
on his Facebook page on Dec.1. “I feel sorry for the victims. There is no
other word but provocation to call it.”

Meanwhile on the same
day, Olga Ivakhno and Oleksandr Shcherbakov, the heads of his press-service
announced on their Facebook pages that they’re quitting their posts. They named
the forceful dispersal of demonstrators in Kyiv as the main reason for their
decision.
