Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev questioned the new government in Ukraine today.
“It is an aberration to call legitimate what is essentially armed mutiny.”

NBC News reported:

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday that Ukraine’s leaders had seized power illegally, and predicted their rule would end with “a new revolution [and] new bloodshed.”

Medvedev said that, while Viktor Yanukovych had practically no authority, he remained the legitimate head of state according the constitution, adding: “If he is guilty before Ukraine – hold an impeachment procedure … and try him.”

“Everything else is lawlessness. The seizure of power,” Medvedev said on his Facebook page. “And that means such order will be extremely unstable. It will end in a new revolution. New bloodshed.”

The remarks were part of a series of Russian statements attacking the legitimacy of the pro-Western government that has been formed since Yanukovych fled Kiev more than a week ago. He surfaced on Friday in Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin obtained consent from the Kremlin-controlled parliament on Saturday to send the Russian military into Ukraine if he wishes, citing the need to protect Russian citizens and Russian-speakers in the neighboring state.

“Russia is ready to develop multi-faceted, respectful relations with brotherly Ukraine — mutually beneficial and effective relations,” Medvedev said.

“But Ukraine for us is not a group of people who, pouring blood on the Maidan (Kiev’s main square), seized power in violation of the constitution and other state laws.”

“Russia needs a strong and stable Ukraine. A predictable and economically thriving partner,” Medvedev said. “Not a poor relation that’s always standing with a hand held out.”
