 Turchynov calls Yanukovych a Kremlin puppet following his masters’ instructions

National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov called fugitive former president Viktor Yanukovych the Kremlin’s stooge when commenting on the ex-president’s interview held by the Sviatoshynskyi district court of Kyiv.

Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

"Ukraine had a chance to look at its former ruler once again and understand the threat posed by a stooge unable to express himself properly, who was leading the country following all of the instructions of his Kremlin masters. It was a very serious risk for Ukraine as it could have lost its independence, its European outlook," Turchynov said to reporters in Kyiv commenting on questioning of Yanukovych as a witness in the trial of five ex-officers of Berkut riot police accused of Maidan activists' execution in February 2014.
