Ousted Ukraine President to Hold News Conference Friday

Ousted president Viktor Yanukovych will hold a news conference, Friday, in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, according to a Thursday report by Russia's RIA-Novosti news agency.

Euronews quoted Yanukovych as saying, "As before I still consider myself to be the lawful head of the Ukrainian state, chosen freely by the will of the Ukrainian people. Now it is becoming clear that the people in southeastern Ukraine and in Crimea do not accept the power vacuum and complete lawlessness in the country, when the heads of ministries are appointed by the mob.”
