The initiative of Chairman of Opposition Platform – For Life Party and MP Viktor Medvedchuk is the only hope for peace in Ukraine. Member of European Parliament from Germany Maximilian Krah said this after the meeting between Medvedchuk and Bundestag parliamentarians when they discussed “Parliamentary estimation of Normandy Format.”
“The initiative of Viktor Medvedchuk is now the only hope, as peace, according to the Minsk agreements and Normandy Format is the only opportunity to realize, as Ukrainian parliament now does now have the will to implement these aspirations for peace in the Ukrainian laws and Viktor Medvedchuk is the only one who supports the gradual realization of these efforts,” he said.
“This conflict in the east of Ukraine was created to make conflict between Russia on one side, and Western Ukraine from the other side, everyone interested in this conflict in Ukraine, influence to obstruct the realization of this peace process. That is why, all who aspire for peace, as I do, are interested that the friends in Ukraine help the realization of peace. This conflict, unfortunately, only enflames the internal conflict in Ukraine. It is also a driver, a method to create tension between Western Ukraine and Russia and impose economic sanctions. Those who want this in Ukraine can influence. That is why, those who, like Viktor, want peace, brought those in Europe who also want peace on their side,” Krah added.
Earlier, Viktor Medvedchuk discussed “Parliamentary dimension” of Normandy format with Members of Bundestag. He also spoke about the problems Ukraine faces on the way to peace.
