Opposition urges Ukrainian authorities to make real progress towards peace in Donbass – world
KIEV, December 29. / TASS /. Opposition Platform Co-Leader – For Life Yuri Boiko said Kiev should go through political settlement, not confrontation and ultimatums in order to end the conflict in Donbass.
âOver the past two months, the authorities have fueled a military psychosis. It comes to the point that all women are already sent to military stations for registration. The previous government exploited war as a technology and blamed everything for it – corruption, theft, etc. The current government continues this approach and blames its incompetence, its economic stagnation, its high tariffs on the war, âsaid Boiko.
The politician stressed that “there is no military solution to the conflict”. “We believe that it is better to negotiate than to shoot, and that we must agree. The crucial condition for peace is the political will of the country’s leaders,” he added.
The co-leader of the opposition is convinced that the government should “go through negotiations, seek compromises and an honest conversation with society” in order to keep its campaign promise – to bring peace to the country. Boiko also recalled that the opposition platform – For Life systematically supports the implementation of the Minsk accords for the rapid restoration of peace in the country.
The Minsk Agreements are the cornerstone of peace in Donbass. Not only does the package of measures, known as Minsk-2, envision a ceasefire between Ukrainian government forces and militias in the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (RDP and RPL respectively), the withdrawal of weapons, amnesty, re-establishment of economic ties, but the agreement also establishes a roadmap for constitutional reform in Ukraine based on dialogue with the DPR and the RPL.
