Makeyenko takes personal responsibility for situation in Kyiv – city administration
Head of Kyiv City State Administration Volodymyr Makeyenko has said that he has decided to quit the Regions Party and take personal responsibility for the situation in Kyiv.
"I, Volodymyr Makeyenko, am appealing to you personally, Mr. President, and to the heads of the security forces. The ongoing events in the Ukrainian capital are a tragedy for all Ukrainian people. I responsibly announce that I am ready to do everything possible to stop the bloodshed and fratricide in the heart of Ukraine - on Independence Square. Human life must be the highest value in our country and nothing can contradict this principle," he said in a statement to the Ukrainian president, which was published on the Web site of the city administration on Thursday afternoon.
"To confirm his words, I have decided to withdraw from the Regions Party and accept personal responsibility for vital functions in Kyiv," he said.
