The “diplomatic theatre” of Zelensky’s government around negotiations on the resolution of the conflict in Donbas has completely gone bankrupt. The negotiators appointed by Zelensky cannot and do not even seek to ensure a political settlement of the conflict in Donbas. Ze-team does not fulfill its political obligations and uses meetings at the international level only for PR. Instead of a dialogue focused on results, it imitates “vivid activity” through personnel changes and provocative statements about the revision of the Minsk agreements.
As a result, the negotiation process within the framework of the Normandy Four at the level of advisers and the Normandy format of negotiations, in general, are in jeopardy. This is evident from the letter of the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Executive Office of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kozak to the representative of the Federal Republic of Germany and other participants in the negotiations.
The “calm reaction” to the current situation stated by the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak once again testifies to the unwillingness of the authorities to seek peace and unity in the country. Ze-team is satisfied with the “frozen conflict,” twenty-five years of endless confrontation and split of Ukraine, for which they have already begun to prepare society. But Ukrainian citizens are not satisfied with this position. The Ukrainian people do not intend to endure dividing lines, crisis and poverty for the seventh year, to which they were doomed by the policy of Poroshenko-Zelensky.
Opposition Platform - For Life demands that the authorities stop demagogy about the “difficult diplomatic game” and fulfill their obligations. Ukraine can truly show the initiative and active position only by starting work on the implementation of the political part of the Minsk agreements by ensuring development and adoption of laws agreed upon at the meeting of governments and heads of state of Normandy Four in Paris last December.
One can “calmly react” to the letters of politicians, but one should not be indifferent to the deaths, devastation and poverty of people. In the elections, Ukrainian citizens voted for peace, they did not vote for cynics who please radicals, flirt with the war party and stage theatrical performances on international level. Ze-authorities are obliged to bring Ukraine to peace or to resign following its ideological inspirer Poroshenko.
