Mykhaylo Dobkin is the Party of Regions’ candidate at the presidential elections in Ukraine. He has been a staunch supporter of the last president, Viktor Yanukovich and even within his own party is regarded as a radical pro-Russian, unable to deal with the pro-European population in eastern Ukraine.
Mykhaylo Dobkin said:
“No referendum will remove the issues that exist in our society today. I think that changing the constitution of Ukraine to delegate more power to the local level is the only way to preserve the integrity and stability of our state.
