Viktor Yanukovych has announced that he will ask the Congress and the Supreme Court of the United States to give a legal assessment of the U.S. administration's policies toward Ukraine.
"I intend to address the Congress, the Senate and the Supreme Court of the U.S. and urgently suggest that they give a legal assessment of the policies being pursued by the government of this country," Yanukovych told reporters in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, on Tuesday.
"Your own laws give you no right to give money to bandits," he said.
"Everyone is aware of the U.S. government's plans to allocate $1 billion for this bandit regime. As far as I know, U.S. laws prohibit extending financial assistance to the government of any state where the legitimately elected president was ousted as a result of a military coup or any other illegal decision," Yanukovych said.
Viktor Yanukovych has said that he intends to return to Kiev in the near future and has described Ukraine's presidential elections, set for May 25, as illegitimate."As soon as the situation permits, I will certainly return to Kiev. Surely, it will not be long," Yanukovych told reporters in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, on Tuesday.
