Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is going to attract foreign investors to his country with the help of beautiful Ukrainian women.

Yanukovych delivered a speech during a Friday lunchtime session at the annual International Economic Forum in Davos, focusing on the Switch On Ukraine PR-campaign, which promotes the upcoming Euro 2012 football tournament, which Ukraine is co-hosting with Poland.

"In order to 'Switch On Ukraine' it is enough to look at it with your own eyes when chestnuts start blooming in Kiev and Ukrainian women start undressing. To see this beauty is amazing," the Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper quoted Yanukovych as saying.

The lunch's host, Reuters journalist Chrystia Freeland, was not overly impressed by Yanukovych's sexist comments.

"Political correctness has yet to reach Ukraine," said Freeland, who is of Ukrainian descent. "But nevertheless it was nice to learn about the beauty of Ukrainian women."
