Ukraine's Yanukovich says will not run for second term if ratings low

KIEV, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich, whose popularity has been hurt by huge street protests over his policy U-turn towards Russia, said on Thursday he would not run for re-election in 2015 if his ratings were low.

Answering a question during a televised news conference, Yanukovich, who was elected in February 2010, replied: “If my ratings are low and I have no prospects (of winning), then I shall not get in the way of the country developing and moving forward.”
