Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, who is currently hiding in Russia, will present his book about "Maidan" in Moscow on Wednesday, February 4. The presentation will be held in the editorial of "Komsomolskaya Pravda" in Moscow.

According to the publication, Azarov has worked on the book named "Ukraine at the crossroads" for a whole year since his escape from Kyiv.

The newspaper has also published excerpts from the book, in which Azarov describes the events at "Maidan" as a coup and tries to explain the decision to postpone the EU Association, which triggered "Euromaidan".

Former Prime Minister says that dozens of "thugs" attacked "Berkut" on the night of November 30, 2014, when "Euromaidan" students were beaten. Azarov, allegedly, found out about the events at 9 AM.

Azarov says that shooting at "Maidan" on February 20 was organized by "Maidan" itself. He wonders, "Why the guilty of this crime has not yet been found?"
