Also, I urge members of the Transcarpathian Regional Council to not be afraid of the pressure, and, in this difficult time for the country, to decide whether you are on the side of those who gave orders to beat the young people on the Maidan or you're on the side of the people. We must make the government reckon with the interests of 46 million people. I urge students, doctors, teachers, intellectuals, businessmen, farmers on the region to show civil courage and to join the national strike. Now, on the streets of the country, people are defending their position, standing for the European future of Ukraine. The European idea has finally won in Ukraine.
