Former officer of the State Guard Department Mykola Melnychenko has explained his return to Ukraine from the United States by the fact that he had more chances to survive in Ukraine than in the United States.

"I was led by the self-preservation instinct. Today I have much more chance of survival in Ukraine than in the United States," he told journalists at Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv, which is to select a measure of restraint for the ex-major today.

When asked who threatened him in the United States, the former bodyguard of Second Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma said: "Very influential people, who don't want Melnychenko to survive and give evidence."
