Holos (The Voice) political party of Sviatoslav Vakarchuk

Sviatoslav Vakarchuk's Holos (The Voice) party made a statement, in which it suggested to withdraw from Minsk agreements and focus on Ukraine's state interests. It is reported on the official Facebook page of the political party. 

"We believe that the only effective way for Ukraine today is to get out of Minsk agreements and freeze the situation until iimproving its own positions. We fight for two front lines - with Russia on the external front, and with corruption, weak economics and ineffectiveness of the state institutions on the home front. It is still impossible to take Crimea and Donbas back on the conditions acceptable for Ukraine. That is why we should build up the country, develop the economics, and return our lands when we will be strong enough and the international situation will facilitate it," the statement reads.

The Voice also added that Crimea and parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions are the occupied territories of Ukraine and can not be considered separately from each other. However, "today there is no fast and effective way to give the territories on Ukraine's conditions: neither military nor diplomatic". 

According to the party, Russia is not ready for constructive dialogue and continues the policy it started in 2014.
