The Co-Chair of the OPPOSITION BLOC Yuriy Boyko said this during a conversation with journalists in the corridors of the Verkhovna Rada on Wednesday, November 7.
“We are in favor of holding direct talks between Ukraine, Russia and the self-proclaimed republics. It is necessary to stop hiding under a blanket and finally do something. It is impossible to handle such a conflict only with the help of mediators. International experience confirms that the conflict can be handled only through direct negotiations and the presence of guarantors – they can be the United States for Ukraine and the Russian Federation for the unrecognized republics,” the Co-Chair of the OPPOSITION BLOC stressed.
“We are ready to take part in this, we are not afraid for our political ratings. Such negotiations should be held for the sake of peace and stability in the state,” Yuriy Boyko said.
