As reported by Censor.NET citing 112 Ukraine TV channel, Yanukovych told a press conference in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

"I did make some mistakes, I'm not a saint. The biggest mistake I made was that I did not have guts then to sign the order to bring troops and impose martial law in Ukraine. It was the only way then to stop the radicals. I did not go to the bloodshed," the fugitive ex-president said.
