“Why the issues of the return of the prisoners, stop of war are raised from his side (Viktor Medvedchuk, - 112.international) only before the elections, ask him,” the president said.
Zelensky added that he has never communicated with Medvedchuk and he does not understand why the independent state should have the mediators.
As it was reported earlier, Medvedchuk arranges release of four Ukrainians from captivity in self-proclaimed "DNR" and "LNR." Direct talks between Viktor Medvedchuk and leaders of self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR” Denys Pushylin and Leonid Pasichnyk were held in Minsk on June 27.
