Took place in a very difficult political and economic conditions,” – said Kravchuk.

“I don’t know a lot of countries, maybe very little, where would be the situation like in Ukraine. Where are our internal enemies or, more precisely, internal enemies, so closely United with the external enemies. The Communists of Ukraine – enemies of independence. The Communists of Russia – patriots of Russia. The Communists of Ukraine – the enemies of independence and the patriots of Russia. Imagine: where else is it possible that within the country was a political force which is hostile to independence and is a patriot of another country,” – said Kravchuk.
