Moscow (QHA) -

Russian President Putin believes that ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has no future in politics.  He said this during the press conference with Russian journalists on Tuesday, March 4. 

“I think that he has no future in politics.  I said this to him,” told Putin. 

“The fact that we participated in his life- we did it solely on humanitarian grounds.  Bearing in mind that death is the simplest way to get rid of the legitimate president.  I think that he would have been killed there otherwise.  By the way, the question comes up “for what?” – added Putin.   

According to Russian President, not signing Association Agreement with the EU triggered all these events.  

“Today it sounds like some nonsense,”- says Putin.  “Yanukovych did not refuse the Agreement, he just asked for more time for additional discussions of this document”.
