Yanukovych: Ukraine to 'Respond Accordingly' to Terrorist AttacksWorld | April 27, 2012, Friday // 16:38| views
Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich called a series of bomb blasts in the former Soviet republic on Friday a challenge, promising an adequate response.
Four bombs planted in rubbish bins injured 27 people in the city of Dnipropetrovsk earlier on Friday, April 27.
"We... understand that this is another challenge to us, to the whole country," Yanukovich, who was visiting the southern Crimea region, said, as cited by Interfax. "We will think how to respond accordingly," added the Ukrainian President.
Speaking later on Friday, he stated that a "ruthless struggle for power" is an obstacle to Ukraine's stable development.
"There are circumstances that pose obstacles to our country. These are increasing competition in the world in the struggle for resources, in the struggle for markets... I would say that a subjective reason is a ruthless struggle for power... The interests of politicians are often above over the interests of the state," he said during the ceremony to launch a new plant for sulfuric acid production at Crimean Titan in Armiansk on Friday, April 27, as cited by The Kyiv Post.
Yanukovych also said that Ukraine's investment attractiveness was huge and that everything should be done to convince investors that it is safe to invest in Ukraine.
In particular, he said that the operation of Crimean Titan was an example of successful investment activities. He said that the opening of a new plant for sulfuric acid production was a landmark event not only for the Crimean economy, but also for Ukraine.
