Political expert Mykhailo Pohrebinsky haven’t yet heard a single comprehensible plan of overcoming the crisis in Ukraine’s East.
“Driving from the standstill the dead end with negotiations on the peaceful settlement of Donbas crisis makes little sense. We can study the offers by presidential candidates, but the real attempt to change anything will be possible after we get to know who gets the office on Bankova street (address of the President’s Administration office, - ed.),” Mykhailo Pohrebinsky said on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel on February 27.
As we reported earlier, the representatives of “Donetsk People’s Republic” (DPR) Denis Pushilin and “Luhansk People’s Republic” (LPR) Leonid Pasechnik agreed on the direct negotiations with Kyiv on the plan proposed by Head of Political Council of Party “Opposition platform – For life” Viktor Medvedchuk, facilitated by the European partners on settlement of Donbas Conflict.
Viktor Medvedchuk, the politician and the head of 'Ukrainsky Vybir' (Ukrainian Choice) political party faces prosecution in Ukraine. Ukraine’s Prosecutor General's Office opened the case against him in state treason and encroachment on the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. The basis for the criminal proceeding is an application of the Ukrainian MP from the People’s Front political party. The criminal case opened against the politician for his proposals on settlement of the military conflict in Donbas by granting the region with autonomy and capturing that in the Constitution of Ukraine. Medvedchuk voiced the proposals at the All-Ukrainian Congress of the party on January 29.
Members of the European Parliament condemned the criminal proceeding against Viktor Medvedchuk, the representative of the "Opposition Platform - For Life" political party.
