Leader of UDAR Vitali Klitschko called on top-ranked European politicians to block Ukrainian authorities’ business transactions from using Western financial system. "This is not only fraudulently earned, but also bloody money", Vitali Klitschko pointed out, speaking at the 50th Munich Security Conference.

He said that Yanukovych and his closest allies have been ignoring the protests of millions of people for two months and do not hear their demands, which has led to radicalization of confrontation.

UDAR leader added that Yanukovych had made ruling majority to adopt a so-called amnesty bill in the version, which can only increase a degree of tension in society. "Once again the country is overshadowed by a threat of use of force by the Yanukovych's regime", Klitschko pointed out.

UDAR leader noted that pressure on the government is growing and Yanukovych’s regime began to stagger. "We continue to demand the following steps: release all detainees without any conditions, restoration of the Constitution of 2004 which provides for deconcentration of power, change of electoral legislation, and holding of presidential and parliamentary elections under close international supervision", the politician stressed.

Klitschko reiterated that authorities’ rejection follow the path of a genuine, but not a fake dialogue will lead to a further escalation of violence and violence bursts.

"People of Ukraine have proved that they are able to protect its European choice, despite the repression. Ukrainians took to rallies under EU flags because most of us seek to introduce European values ​​in Ukraine. However, Yanukovych regime felt that European choice posed threat to the basis of his authority - corruption, terror and irresponsibility.  That is why on November 30 an entirely peaceful protest was brutally dispersed. Ukrainians must be the first people in Europe who have shed their blood for European idea", Vitali Klitschko said.

He noted that the goal of democratic forces in Ukraine is a country’s return to European course through economic, judicial, administrative, tax, management and self-government systems reforms.
