Russian community of Crimea to support Yanukovych’s candidature for presidency

The Russian community of Crimea expressed its support to the Party of Regions leader Viktor Yanukovych at the coming presidential election.

The community believes that Yanukovych as president “would effectively represent and fight for democratic values in the development of modern Ukraine.”

At the same time, the Russian society of Crimea asked the Party of Regions leader to take all the necessary measures to normalize the social and political situation in Crimea “the destabilization of which was caused by actions of Anatoliy Hrytsenko at the post of Crimean Supreme Council Chairman.”

According to reports in the Crimean mass media, this statement was made by Serhiy Tsekov, the chairman of the Russian Community of Crimea and first vice speaker of the Crimean parliament, after his meeting with Yanukovych.

  1. Peter Crosby said

    However, most of Crimea’s Russian community should be debarred from voting due to their illegally holding Russian, as well as Ukrainian, passports.

  2. Democratic Vote said

    By Peter Crosby’s logic all the millions of Ukrainian Citizens who have immigrated to the EU, England, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Canada should also be denied the right to vote.

    As long as they hold Ukrainian citizenship or were born in Ukraine they are entitled to a vote. It’s called Democracy. Something that some people think only applies to those who support their point of view. Not surprising when you consider Crosby’s clear bias.
