I have never met with Yanukovych. I was present at meetings with him during his visits to Brussels and during the visit of President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy and President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso to Kyiv. As a rule, the president holds meetings with EU leaders tete-a-tete, so I never had a personal meeting with Yanukovych,” the diplomat said in an exclusive interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
“According to him, the situation in other countries involved in the process of European integration is different.
“I was in one of these countries, and I even was given the mobile phone number of the prime minister and the president of that country, I talked to them almost every day,” the diplomat said.
