"I came to Donetsk to talk to people. We must prevent all attempts from outside to split Ukraine. Here in Donetsk people feel betrayed by the government and the president, who came from this region. They promised good salaries, decent living conditions, and funds for the development of the region. But in fact all money went for enrichment of Yanukovych and his allies,” UDAR leader said. “Now they all fled, and people are left to the mercy of fate. That is why Donbas feels cheated and confused. But the main thing is that people defend the integrity of Ukraine and believe that changes are possible. They are willing to work for it," Klitschko highlighted.
He pointed out that there are many "tourists" in Eastern Ukraine. They had come there to set up provocations and destabilize the situation. This can be prevented by unity of the people, by their common and strong position that Donbas is Ukraine, and Ukraine is independent and indivisible state.
In Donetsk Vitali Klitschko laid flowers at the monument to Taras Shevchenko and talked to people there. Leader of UDAR will deliver a speech at a rally for unity of Ukraine and will and participate in TV and radio programs.
