The political crisis currently engulfing Ukraine was sparked by former England captain John Terry, according to the country's embattled president.
Viktor Yanukovych said the Chelsea defender's clearance that led to a 'goal' being disallowed during a match at Euro 2012 between his country and England is a key reason why he resents the European Union.
The president made the remarks during a 70-minute rant to two visiting US senators.
Connecticut senator Chris Murphy described Mr Yanukovych's speech as "the longest monologue to which I have ever borne witness" in a blog on his website.
"He opens by restating his commitment to joining the EU, but spends most of the speech listing the slights he feels Europe has lodged against him and his country," he wrote.
"At one point he spends more than a few minutes talking about a disallowed goal by Ukraine in a 2012 Euro Cup match against England."
Since November, thousands of Ukrainians have protested against a Government decision not to sign a partnership deal with the EU and have called for Mr Yanukovych to resign.
