Ukraine Leader Tilts Toward Russia 12/19/13
KIEV, Ukraine - Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovch has warned foreign governments against meddling in the country's internal affairs, in an apparent swipe at the West.
Speaking in a televised interview Thursday, Yanukovych said it was unacceptable "for someone to be coming here and to teaching us how to live."
The comments were apparently aimed at top Western diplomats who have recently visited and expressed support for the massive anti-government demonstrations that have rocked Kiev for nearly a month.
The comments came two days after Yanukovych received a major bailout from Russia in order to keep the struggling Ukrainian economy afloat. The Moscow accords were condemned by the opposition as betrayal of national interests.
