Baku-APA. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that riots in Kiev have no direct relation to Ukraine and EU deal, but rather an attempt by opposition to undermine the country's legitimate government, APA reports quoting RT.

“As far as the events in Ukraine are concerned, to me they don’t look like a revolution, but rather like 'pogrom'. However strange this might seem, in my view it has little to do with Ukrainian-EU relations,”Putin said.

Speaking in Yerevan during his official visit to Armenia, Putin argued that the protests in Ukraine had been prepared by the opposition in advance to undermine the legitimate government of the country. However, it is “apparent” that the opposition had meant them to take place during the Ukrainian presidential campaign in March 2015, the Russian President said.

“What is happening now is a little false start due to certain circumstances… This all has been prepared for the presidential election. And that these were preparations, in my opinion, is an apparent fact for all objective observers,” Putin stressed.

He has said that now Ukrainian opposition is either not in control of the protests, or it may serve as cover-up for extremist activities.
