The United Kingdom and the United States, as signatories to the Budapest Memorandum, need to be involved in the negotiation process on Ukraine’s occupied territories. This idea was expressed by Vice Prime Minister for the Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov in an interview with NV.
"I have a positive attitude to this idea because there is one story that is being forgotten. This is the Budapest Memorandum, its list of signatories includes the United States and the United Kingdom. It seems to me that it would be good if they, as serious players on the international stage, as strategic partners of Ukraine, could join the negotiations and help Ukraine restore our territorial integrity and sovereignty within the limits that are recognized internationally," Reznikov said.
He also stressed the need to create a new negotiating platform to discuss the Crimea issue.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine wants to see Poland as a member of the future international platform on the de-occupation of Russia-annexed Crimea.
