Ukrainian MP: Euromaidan's worst outcome is loss of life, division of people

MINSK, 14 January (BelTA) - The worst consequences of the 2013-2014 Euromaidan in Ukraine are the loss of life and the division of people, Ukraine's MP Yevgeny Shevchenko said in an interview to ONT TV channel, BelTA has learned.

“Maidan has provoked a conflict. It has resulted in a loss of life, a great number of victims. It has ripped people into ‘us' and ‘them'. Families have been torn apart on political lines: for example, the husband supports nationalists, and the wife – the self-proclaimed republic of Donetsk. This is probably the worst thing,” Yevgeny Shevchenko noted.

The political dividing lines have translated into religious conflicts. People have started arguing about different historical periods in the life of the country, the MP added.

“Maidan has resulted in economic losses, territorial losses. There was nothing good about it,” he said.
