Gordon: Yanukovich went on a bender because of depression

Gordon: Yanukovich went on a bender because of depression
Translated by: Mariya Shcherbinina

According to the journalist, the drunk former President tried to order around the Head of Putin’s Administration. 

Former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych went on a drinking binge and is currently deeply depressed, stated Kyiv-based journalist Dmytro Gordon on Shuster Live.

“Yanukovych is now on a bender. You know, he is now in Sochi in his dacha, drinking all the time. I know for sure that when he lived near Moscow, he was visited by Sergey Borisovich Ivanov, the head of the Administration of President Putin. Yanukovych greeted him in a robe, drunk, and started giving him orders. After this Ivanov came to Putin and said: ‘Don’t send me there again, because it is unclear who is the guest here: him or us.’ Yanukovych is on a bender, depressed. Because it looks like it even got through his skull what he did in the historical sense,” Gordon said.

According to the journalist, this is verified information, however, he did not name his sources.
