Vakarchuk says presidential post of no interest to him
Ukrainian rock star and civic leader Sviatoslav Vakarchuk has announced that the presidential post is not something that interests him at the moment and what he calls for are some changes to take place in the country.
"I would like to say it once again: the [presidential] post is of no interest to me. I am interested in changes in the country," Ukrainska Pravda quoted him as saying at a public lecture in Kharkiv on October 29.
Vakarchuk said that the president is not "a role you play in a serial," the president is "a serious business." "Let us stop all the discussions whether I will run for president or not. It is not something to be discussed today, I am offended by such questions," he said.
Vakarchuk also said that he will be unlikely to stand many chances "to change something" all on his own. "I think that we can only achieve something by joining our efforts," he said.
