Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych's proposal to introduce a moratorium on the use of force is a good initiative. First Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk (1991-1994) said this on the Shuster Live program. "The proposal for a moratorium on the use of force, even if we can throw into question whether this is possible or not, should be welcomed," he said.
The president's representative in the Verkhovna Rada, Yuriy Miroshnichenko, added that the president's address is a positive signal, but much will depend on the organizers of pro-European rallies. President Viktor Yanukovych, at a national roundtable meeting on December 13, proposed declaring a moratorium on the use of force during mass events.
