Barack Obama, saying that when He became President, Ukraine was headed by the leader of the former " puppet of Moscow ", made a specific reservation, because at that moment the President of Ukraine was Yanukovych, Yushchenko, said the head of the international Department of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.
leader Barack Obama wanted to call a puppet of the former head of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, but in reality declared ex-President Viktor Yushchenko, reports the words of Kosachev, RIA " Novosti ".
"It's interesting: yesterday in a televised interview, the head of the United States made a very specific reservation, calling the President of Ukraine, the former in power at a time when Obama himself came to the White house, "corrupt leader" and the puppet capital of Russia. The piquancy of the situation is that just at the moment of the appearance of Obama at the helm of power in the USA, in January 2009, the highest office in Kiev was occupied by Viktor Yushchenko, " - said Kosachev." About his corruption, I will not be judged, but on the issue of accountability Moscow Viktor flinched from such assumptions, " said the Senator. According to Kosachev, the U.S. leader, most likely, meant that Victor Yanukovych. However, relative to its "prorossijskosti" too not all so is simple, he said." This is the most leader, who declared its course toward integration into the European Union, which is preparing an agreement with the EU in harm to relations with Russia, which slowed down only when he saw the devastating consequences of such step for Ukraine ", - the Deputy reminded. He said, because It was Pro-Ukrainian, but he was not forgiven, and simple deferral. European leaders, the guarantors of their agreement with the Maidan broke their promises, when there was an opportunity to make a bet on Pro-Ukrainian, and blindly and unconditionally Pro-Western politicians, said Kosachev. First press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin Dmitry Peskov said the words Obama, who called a puppet of the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych." Be called a puppet of the former President who was ousted in a violent way in a result of an armed coup, organized and sponsored from outside, it is hardly appropriate, " - said the press Secretary of the head of the country. Remember, in the same interview, the head of Barack Obama called the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, " a corrupt puppet of Putin."
