(SOUNDBITE) (Ukrainian) UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT VIKTOR YANUKOVICH, SAYING: "As for the people who came out to the rallies, any show of public will is always confirmed by everybody's opportunity and right to speak their mind. It is important that these rallies have a peaceful character. In such cases it's important, of course, when we say we are building a democratic government, a democratic community that all participants follow the law."
