EU officials violate Ukraine sovereignty by urging people to rise up - expert


The way that EU officials are talking about protests in Ukraine, it’s almost as if the whole of Ukraine has made up its mind and wants to join the EU, Marcus Papadopoulus, the editor of Politics First magazine, told the Voice of Russia. But that’s not the case whatsoever, he added. The fact that there are EU officials and European politicians going to Ukraine and urging for people to rise up, to oppose the government, "that’s completely a violation of state’s sovereignty," Dr Marcus Papadopoulus explained.

According to latest reports, pro-European Union demonstrators who were holding a rally on Kiev's Independence Square on Tuesday split up with some of them staying on the square and the rest setting off for the building of the president's office.

The march to the president's office, which brought together hundreds, followed an appeal from Oleksandr Turchynov, coordinator of the "National Resistance Committee." The marchers were going to demand the resignation of the government and early parliamentary elections.

Marcus Papadopoulus, the editor of Politics First magazine, believes that the Ukrainian government "needs to be left alone to decide what is in the best interests of Ukraine."
