Reports say Ukraine's ousted President Viktor Yanukovych will make a public statement at midday on March 11.
Unnamed sources close to Yanukovych tell Russian news agencies that Yanukovych will deliver the statement from Russia's southern city of Rostov-on-Don. It would mark only his second public statement since he fled Ukraine last month during antigovernment unrest, RFE/RL reports.
On February 28, also in Rostov-on-Don, Yanukovych said he was still the legitimate president of Ukraine and dismissed the country's current authorities as "fascist thugs."
In a press conference on March 4, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Yanukovych was still Ukraine's legitimate leader, but conceded that he had no political future. He said Russia had sheltered him in order to save his life.
