5:30 am
between ukraine and the european union for almost two years they were promoting this idea explaining that it is the best way of development for ukraine and ukrainian people and then they turned in the opposite direction overnight and did not explain anything to the people of ukraine so people were outraged they went out to the streets and again the government missed unocal which were not able to talk to the people so after that the peaceful protest was handed by the extremists like it happened in tunisia for example or like it happened in egypt when. the revolutions were made by western oriented people who are thinking about the more than a zation of our cake society is not as a result of the elections the islamist forces won here the similar picture it all started like
5:31 am
a peaceful protest and then the extremists the warlords the field commanders appeared in kiev they started shooting this they started riots they started. real war in the streets of the european capital and when i saw the pictures on the t.v. screen i was really shocked it was not european capital it was oriental capital that what now i mean at this point is going to stay together ukraine tea thing it will splayed maybe we'll see self-governing rages like in the united states where she's risen with this constitution well last saturday i visited kharkov. the congress of the deputies of all levels of eastern southern ukraine and crimea some journalists were calling this congress the congress solve separatists. i would like to say that it was not true i did not hear any separate the slogans
5:32 am
there i heard the words of responsible politician who cared about the territorial integrity of ukraine about the development of ukraine about the more nays ational ukraine about eliminating the corruption from political life and about the future of ukraine as a unified state maybe federal maybe come federal medal i don't know and they did not know but. they were. hoping for unity and praying for unity but do you feel like at this point the west of ukraine will dictate what should happen in the east of the country is the east losing its voice or is it pretty much to equal balance well. the west of ukraine sounds more loud today and looks more active more aggressive. because as we know almost. the overwhelming majority of the fighters of the street fighters in kiev
5:33 am
they come from west to create example. east ukraine is more quiet when i was driving along the streets of product of. everything was it was business as usual i mean it was a quiet city. policeman did not carry firearms it was really quite. but it all changed i came back to moscow or sunday morning and heard the news that even in kharkov the unrest has started so it looks like the domino effect. going all around ukraine and we see that there are demonstrations in crimea other of the demonstrations in sevastopol the red demonstrations all around the country and the temperature of political discussion between different political forces between different political parties is extremely high also on thinking about the security forces because they're very discredited in front of the people. they were
5:34 am
also betrayed by the government will they in general be able to keep things in order in ukraine well what i saw i saw that again the policemen were not armed and i know that the army. is let's say taking the position that it's not involved in the conflict in the political conflict which to my mind is a wise position. and but when we talk about security in ukraine there is another angle on looking at ukrainian security not only from the point of security in the streets or physical security of the citizens but also there is an angle of nuclear security there are six nuclear power station operating in ukraine nowadays there are seventeen uclear reactors working in ukraine there are at least two or three thousand points of concern i mean. chemical pollution for all the issues and no one from ukrainian politician is talking about that no one who
5:35 am
positions him or herself as the current power says a word about nuclear security you feel like it's a real cause of concern i do feel because in january the protesters has already attacked the energy ministry they has already attacked the nuclear power station and we all remember the chair nobile is in ukraine but i do remember the media there saying that actually station in ukraine right now is a threat to russia's national security is that what he meant this is one of the aspects this is one of the aspects because when we ask questions about nuclear security we don't have anybody who's going to be giving us any responsible answer but also who is going to be in charge right now of this aspect of the nuclear plants god knows god knows because we see that the new political generation so to speak which has come to power they are more concerned about. removing
5:36 am
all demolishing of the statue of could lose a whole statue of this old good soldier ukrainian soldier by the way or the statue of lenin. or they're more concerned about the future of the russian language in ukraine but they do not think about nuclear security but i do want to talk about the new generation because ten years ago way so progress to revolution and bring a protester a leader later. on people got disappointed and we saw a u. turn towards the east now we're seeing a reversal of this process it's like a never ending cycle i'm afraid that today would see a little bit different for a process from what we saw in two thousand and four it's not a one hundred percent pro western movement because the comments which we hear from the leaders of ukrainian radicals they sound like ukrainian sala feasts they say ok europe is not the europe which we are dreaming about because the family values are on the mind the christian values on the mind the gay marriages law and blah blah
5:37 am
blah and so on and so on and so forth well it's the it sounds like it it sounds like european taliban if one can exist but also i'm wondering why are protesters still out and write down what else do they want what are they protesting the question right now they are enjoying the process to my mind it's their revolution for the sake of the revolution but not for the result of the revolution but what what's going to happen now i mean in terms of who is going to run the country so shanker come out of prison she was addressing the crowd but is she really the one who can you need file this really different opposition forces well i think today ukrainian police political puzzle is one of the most difficult puzzles in the world yes there is ukrainian parliament which adopts new legislation but unfortunately these new adopted legislation is questionable because it's not the same way the president. the speaker of the parliament is considered to be an interim president
5:38 am
but again there are certain questions. how does it coincide with the current you ukrainian constitution even the adopted version of two thousand and four and to my mind would see today a very strange cocktail a very strange mixture of different laws of different legislations of different periods and. it's hard to say what is legal and what is illegal in ukraine yes we hope that ukrainians will manage to organize a democratic transparent european style elections in may on the twenty fifth of may and the new president who will have much less authority than the previous president the misty in the college because the constitution of two thousand and four will be in place will have to eat all that borscht. ok but i want to hear a thousand words to washington what do you think of her she's someone who may. very well she wants to be involved she wants to be involved she was
5:39 am
a banner of the opposition she was the banner of the anti the polish protest when she was in prison but now she's old and she is on the same ground with the other leaders of the opposition who are in mind when she was in prison and they start asking each of the difficult questions who's going to be the leader who's going to take part in the presidential elections who are going to take the responsibility for the transition period because to my mind it will be one of the most difficult periods for ukrainian economy and for ukraine young people but i mean two to my understanding more than leaders between themselves there are three different didn't three main aspects which is like the people of ukraine who don't necessarily think that is the future of ukraine because they also said she had her way with. the with the past and she was branded as either western history yes she was branded by the west and at home as an oligarch puppet so it's not as if she was returning to be
5:40 am
president from a clean slate and everything within her bedroom missile as a wrinkle in her business partners to liberate is imprisoned in the u.s. by the way exactly so what's going to happen to that that's a good question it seems like each and every ukrainian political leader looks at. elections as a commercial project and it seems. like people who come to ball when ukraine they immediately think about their families first and then about the people of ukraine who elected them that was the case with your shingo that was the case with the un acknowledged wells and we'll take a short break now when we're back we're going to continue talking to. bill is going to give money to ukraine next stay with.
5:41 am
the transit routes of a new people report you'll best way to the house of moscow. the plentiful it was a terrible mistake and led very hard to make our lives again a little longer there's a lot that we never had sex with others make their lives let
5:42 am
alone was. just so. listen the i'm listening. plug right close to live the first recipient list and i predict future. play. live on our employers twitter. and instagram live live in the live
5:43 am
on la. live. live. live live . live live live. live
5:44 am
. clinton. mission to teach me. why you should. only.
5:45 am
and we're back with. they had all the foreign affairs committee in russia's federation council there's also the aspect of the west and russia the western politicians are talking to right now and as if she was the legitimate leader of the crane which is not the case well we are we are in the reserves today we are studying trying to study the situation on the ground and that's why by the way my colleagues from the state duma are currently in crimea i would delegation the occasion of the russian senate. on wednesday. to study the said is the situation we are sending fact finding missions to work in the field to talk to the people not
5:46 am
only to talk to the political leaders but also to talk to n.g.o.s that talk to really just leaders ukraine is multinational multi religious country and you cannot solve the problems than of the country only. supporting the west or ukraine or the east or you create the remote slim's there are a ton of ours in crimea. the russians syria's there are georgians there it's a very colorful picture but russia anchorage now probably has done bishan too had a multicultural she does a great she does russia via her right now well we heard only very preliminary. political statements of yulia tymoshenko she did not work out the presidential program yet we do not know what is the team around you will it emotion yes we are in contact with many politicians with representatives of different political groups
5:47 am
now we are just monitoring the of the process would not want to interfere and we don't want. to be blamed for the difficulties of ukrainian political process does anyone know at all who they next candidate to have the country could be rush out here craning in your opinion well my opinion is that probably during this presidential campaign we shall see new faces which will see new potential leaders. probably representing. the green intelligentsia i do not know you may not like the leaders there with very well i'm afraid that these people are more leaders of the past and the leaders of today but ukraine needs a leader of the future when there is some radical growth that we're all you know not very happy that the crisis was resolved or is being resolved do you think they will continue to struggle for power they do continue they do continue as we know
5:48 am
even even. the car of yulia timoshenko and the governor said he gets a new became targets of random search of these armed groups in kiev yes they want to be powerful they want to be involved and there's i've already said they are enjoying the process do you think there's a chance they could come to power well this is a question of how strong will be the interior president and the acting parliament there's also one nationalist opposition leader i like to be mark was saying that all russians would be stripped of citizenship and he goes as far as to say that everyone who by the way she says the same words about the jews. well yeah but you know some of the recent things russia so we are not the only target for ukrainian nationalists but what happens if you really strips all russians of citizenship and if you punishes everyone that you will undermine the country he will undermine the unity of the country he will undermine the future of the country because. i'm sure that neither russians nor ukrainian jews will be silent neither armenians nor
5:49 am
ukrainian georgians will be silent because these people want to live in. in their country and ukraine is their country and their positioning and again i heard it in front of at the at the congress of the deputies they position themselves as ukrainian patriots and they want to fight for their country and they will fight for their country they are also some radical in place and in parliament who are claiming that russian armed forces are basically closing in on crimea right now are they trying to provoke a confrontation well you know i will military bases are in sevastopol they are there according to the agreement which russia legitimate power signed with ukrainian legitimate power and for us we contain status quo nothing has changed are there any circumstances under which russia would consider sending armed forces enter the crane to do kids or and what are you worried about the future of the russia's black sea naval base in the east crimea peninsula of the raw binding
5:50 am
documents which we signed with ukrainian government's we know that begun the withdrawal when they will forces from sevastopol that the certain point where preparing. our naval base on the russian territory so i don't think that there is any kind of unpredictability in that part of our bilateral relations so there is a common side of e.u. and us politicians and the ukrainian rally brawling saying what's that all about what do they want there exactly. what the goal well the goal is to be visible like any politicians they want to be visible them they want to be seen they want to be heard. they want to be recognized but i mean i know the russia's foreign minister has said that the west has chip political interests in ukraine it does or whatever russia what are there to your political interest to my mind is very clear. still in the west there are politicians with a cold war mentality and some people think that if they inspire and to russian
5:51 am
forces in ukraine or in any other former soviet republic that will do that will do good for i don't know nato european union to my mind is the biggest mistake. being pro western for former soviet republic does not automatically mean that they have to be and to russian. russia's main economic partner is the european union and. i think that for any former soviet republic the best way of development is having both good relations with both you the european union and the russian federation but it did seem that at some point it was impossible they had to choose whether it was russia or the e.u. i mean that and i do not understand why i really do not understand why why unocal the then people around him were positioning the choice of ukraine that it's either with the european union or with russia look during the cold war finland and austria
5:52 am
for example they were with the west but they were not members of nato and they were with the soviet union in several aspects and there are many examples from history and you can be friends with the with with anybody but the not to become enemies but so if he waits perceives in the west that it's not yet a coach who didn't make a choice but it's putting you know why sharing ghana cannot reach and ukraine it was going to call the who made the choice because he was responsible he was the ukrainian leader and he's going to college again he was bargaining for almost two years playing that game. advertising the alliance for the european union in ukraine convincing the people of ukraine that for them it's the best way of development and then the night why what was that frightening thing which would you could show to mr young the college. what happens now because ukraine is on the verge of default they
5:53 am
need eight billion dollars this year they need nine billion dollars next year it's going to take care of that money i met e.u. russia well there are there is only one source the financial g twenty with i.m.f. there are several channels like the european bank a reconstruction and development and the international banks. i think that today it's high time for preventing discussion about the future of ukrainian economy because the future of ukrainian economy has immediate impact on the political future of ukraine and we're already i mean russia has already sent two billion dollars to ukraine what happened to that money and it's a good question i think whether when the when misty on a college. friend shows up we shall ask that question when no one really knows where he is but since you bring keep bringing you have what if you ask for a salad i know what question i would raise not in russia so russia will under no circumstances game asylum will i know for sure that he's not to russia but what if
5:54 am
he asks t two for an asylum and i would not invite him to my home but do you think russia would accept him in your humble opinion no well in my humble opinion i think well what is russia going to continue though to give financial aid to ukraine. well we continue. to to while we continue on with ties i would relations with with ukraine. and seen in all spheres we're not cutting anything we called back our message in kiev for consultations because we really want to consult him and ask him what's going on with the talks so you talk to you know about our consulates are still in place they are working in hard coffin simper up and in other cities of ukraine and we are there and we will be there so as soon as a new government is formed a legitimate government russia is going to continue to give financial aid to ukraine it takes two to tango so you think they may not want any more well if we
5:55 am
see a responsible partner we will talk to. you is now saying that they're ready to give twenty billion dollars to the new budget to make government of ukraine where were they before during the previous government why now to be ready does not mean to give they are ready but the question is where is that legitimate government. to my mind european union is. reconsidering its behavior. prior to signing on signing that agreement of association between. ukraine and the european union because we all remember that european union was standing firmly on the position that the mission should be released first and then they were going to sign the agreement with with unocal if so to my mind the european union was putting more obstacles on the way our of the alliance between and we between
5:56 am
ukraine and the european union the russian and. ok you know the unocal has disappeared he is free there is no government there is a revolutionary. spirit. overwhelming in the streets of kiev. do you think that the european bank will be ready money in that circumstances of course more they are waiting for the legitimate government to what president putin says that he will cooperate with any legitimate government does that mean keeping gas prices unchanged well i don't know because i'm not working for gas from libya and these guys know the numbers much better than i do what i know for sure that for us there is no any other choice we will work with any legitimate government of ukraine because no one can take geopolitical eraser and to raise your grain and russia from the globe thank you very much for this interesting thank you.
