The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) for the peaceful settlement of the situation in eastern Ukraine, Leonid Kravchuk, believes that the venue for face-to-face meetings of the TCG could be one of the neutral countries - Switzerland or Finland. Kravchuk stated this in the Rendezvous with Yanina Sokolova, as RBC-Ukraine reports.
"In my opinion, it would be necessary to move (negotiations) to a neutral country. Well, say, to Switzerland or Finland," Kravchuk said.
According to Kravchuk, the negotiating platform can be arranged where the Budapest Memorandum on Ukraine's nuclear-free status was adopted. Kravchuk suggests that this could serve as a bridgehead for combining future talks with an approved nuclear-free status document.
As it was reported earlier, Leonid Kravchuk, the head of the Ukrainian delegation in Minsk talks group said that peace talks to solve Donbas conflict should be taking place in a neutral and democratic country, and Belarus is not an option now.
