on social media

“Last night, I went to the tents (of pro-European protesters on Independence Square in Kyiv), greeted people, talked to them. Everybody says they are not going to give up. And everyone is talking about a complete change of government and asking whether the opposition is able to put forward a single candidate,” the UDAR party’s press service quoted him as saying on Tuesday.

“The democratic forces must nominate and support a single candidate in the presidential election. I said this a long time and I have not changed my opinion. How can we speak of a single team, when there will be several candidates? Don’t the authorities currently need to scatter the votes to arrange a brutal surprise and in the runoff?” Klitschko said.

As reported, on January 5, Head of the Batkivschyna opposition faction Arseniy Yatseniuk said that the leaders of all three opposition political forces would run in the first round of Ukraine’s next presidential election. Such a decision was made in May 2013, he said.
