Yushchenko: Euromaidan brought national disaster |

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko said he did not take part in the Euromaidan due to its demands to release former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko from prison

"I understood very well that there was another project within the circle of political leaders at that time, a political project that ran parallel to what was happening on the square. When the Maidan kept chanting 'Free Yulia!' there was no room for me there," Yushchenko said.

He acknowledged that he went to the Maidan but did not share its ideology.

Regarding Tymoshenko, he said her goal was to destabilize the Ukrainian president, and stressed that the Maidan led Ukraine to a national disaster.

"When I saw short-term change of government considerations take precedence over the perfectly sensible demands of the intelligent young people, I realized that we were faced with national disaster," the former president said.
