However, the President refused his hand to accept the decision, which he described as “unlawful” and as a “coup d’etat”. Several regions in the east and south of the country introduced the parliamentary decision in question. On Monday, the interim government issued an arrest warrant against Yanukovych in Kiev because of “mass murder of peaceful civilians.” The politician is volatile.
