Joe Biden tells how he made Yanukovich flee Ukraine

Former US Vice President Joe Biden published memoirs in which he outlined his version of the events on Euro-Maidan and also talked about the last conversation with former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.

According to the politician, Yanukovich denied his post and left the country exactly after his call.

"I warned him for several months that he should behave with restraint towards Ukrainian citizens, but that night after three months of demonstrations I told him that everything is over: he needs to withdraw his people and leave," Biden writes. According to the politician, Yanukovich left the next day, and control over the government temporarily "fell into the hands of the young patriot Arseny Yatsenyuk."

Memoirs of Joe Biden, entitled "Promise Me, Dad," came out in November. He dedicated the book to his son Beau, who died in 2015 from brain cancer. In the book, the former vice-president talks about his work in the US administration and, in particular, about the role in the events in Ukraine.
