Vitaliy Klitschko, one of the opposition leaders, told about this per telephone to Hromadkse TV.

“Unfortunately I have not brought anything good from these talks. I came as I proposed to cease confrontation before the end of negotiations. President Viktor Yanukovych said that there is only one option available – Maidan (Independence Square) shall be cleared and all protesters shall go home” – told Vitaliy Klitschko.
“That is all. Unfortunately, I was very surprised”, – added Vitaliy Klitschko.“Yanukovych reacts to the situation absolutely inadequately. All that he spoke about was for the oppositional leaders to appeal to the Maidan to stop confrontation and to lay down their weapons.” – the UDAR party site reports Klitschko’s words. He was surprised, which weapons the President had in mind, “if in the center of Kyiv the riot police brutally shoot at the protesters

On top of this, according to Klitschko, Yanukovych stated that all responsibility for the death of people lies on the opposition.
