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.
Earlier, activists of Right Sector party, Automaidan Kyiv and Vіlnі Liudy (Free People) NGOs came at Lukianivka remand prison in Kyiv to prevent the transfer of former Berkut officers to the Sviatoshyn district court that was going to question former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych through videoconferencing. With no suspects delivered, the court decided to adjourn the interview until Nov. 28.
Yanukovych also said it was in his best interest that the interrogation took place today.
