(QHA) -

Ukraine's fugitive ex-president Viktor Yanukovych, who still considers himself legitimate, agitates people to hold referendums in Ukrainian regions such as Crimean one, held on March 16. 

 "As president who is with you in thought and soul, I ask every single sensible citizen of Ukraine not to let yourselves be used by the imposters! Demand a referendum on determining the status of every region in Ukraine," Yanukovych said in a statement quoted by Russia's ITAR-TASS news agency.

He strongly believes that it is thus possible to stabilize the situation in Ukraine and to preserve its integrity and sovereignty.
