Yanukovich attacks dismissal of prosecutor
by UPI

KIEV, Ukraine - Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich said Thursday the president acted illegally when he tried to oust the prosecutor general.

President Viktor Yushchenko reportedly fired Svyatoslav Piskun, but the prosecutor returned to his office escorted by police late in the day, the Russian news agency Itar-Tass reported.

"We've become convinced that the irresponsible and illegal actions of the bureaucrats from the presidential entourage who tried to remove the prosecutor general sparked off controversy and conflict," Yanukovich said in a televised speech. "Why does the guarantor of the constitution (apply) the force of law to one people and (appease) lawlessness when it concerns other people?"
