When seeking sanctuary you say things that you think will get you liked by the host Nation. Let's see if he is still in Russia on their election day. One of the things that will be on the list will be Crimea separating and coming under the Russian umbrella. If Russia does nothing for the rest of the area then she can't be accused of interfering while funding from the West could be seen as 'lobbying' before any votes have been cast.
Somebody mentioned gas sales would not be a factor and that just got reduced by 4/5 and no word on the new price of the product. (in the West the product price is the same but the 'service fees jump 1,000% without a rise in quality of service to anybody but the 10% of the richest in the area) That removes another factor that cannot be used against Russia as she did not cancel the contract, the new UKG did so they must have had alternative plans in place.
For myself if the loot doesn't get returned (minus wages) then it is as hollow a speech as nay politician has ever made. As for who would run it I would say the elected Politicians from the last election throw in one vote each for a general who is currently serving in the military and the top 3 (or more) choices each give a one page speech and then the votes are cast and that is who is in charge until a new government. is seated and that could also include the Generals. No corporals, that was tried and that didn't work out too well.
Yanukovych from Russia: I Was Not Overthrown but Compelled to Leave
Yanukovych, who fled after being impeached by parliament on Saturday, savaged the anti-Kremlin and pro-EU forces who have now taken power.
"Power in Ukraine has been taken by nationalist, pro-fascist young people who represent the absolute minority of people in Ukraine."
"This is anarchy, terror and chaos," he added.
But Yanukovych, 63, speaking in Russian, said he wanted to apologize for leaving Ukraine in its current state.
"I am ashamed. I want to say I apologize to the Ukrainian people for what happened in Ukraine and that I did not have the strength to keep stability."
He blamed the "irresponsible policies" of the West for the crisis in the country and said he would not take part in "illegal" presidential election planned by Ukraine's new leadership for May 25.
Yanukovych said he spoke by telephone to Russian President Vladimir Putin after arriving in the country but had not yet met with the Kremlin chief.

Tell me the truth, why is they any question as to if there has 'been a takeover'? It seems pretty evident that it is a past event as we speak. People are quick to understand when a volcano has blown, the picture would pretty much sum things up.
