Ukraine's Ex-President Predicts New Revolution in the Country
KIEV (Sputnik) — In February 2014, violent clashes with law enforcement broke out in Kiev, spreading across the country and leading to a government coup. The protest forced Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president at the time, to flee the country.

The lawyer stressed that the procedure of removing Yanukovych from the office was carried out with severe violation of the constitution.

"He has intentions to return to Ukraine, and legal steps will be made for this. Yanukovych has not relinquished his presidential powers and has not withdrawn from the country's leadership," Serdyuk told the Ukrainian Glavcom news portal in an interview.
