Russian President Vladimir Putin said that contrary to rumors, spread in the media about the death of ex- president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych is still alive.
During the press conference in Moscow, Putin said that Yanukovych “will catch a cold at the funerals of those, who spread such rumors”.
“Since he (Yanukovych- ed.) is on the territory of the Russian Federation, I saw him only once. He was alive and well and wished you the same,”- noted Putin, answering the question about rumors of Yanukkovych’s death.
To recall, EuroMaidan and human rights activist Mikhail Lebed informed about death of ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych due to heart attack. Lebed referred to a friend from Cardiology Center of the city of Rostov in Russia.
