Yurii Boyko: The task of the authorities and of all responsible political forces is to achieve peace in Ukraine
Today, the key mission of the government and of all responsible political forces is to prevent escalation of the conflict in the east of the country, to restore a stable ceasefire. To do so, the authorities must negotiate with all parties to the conflict, according to the co-chairman of the OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE parliamentary faction Yurii Boyko said in his commentary to journalists.
The politician believes that, first of all, it is necessary to restore the ceasefire.
“The ceasefire will become the basis for further political settlement of the conflict. This is possible if there is a political will of official Kyiv. The implementation of the Minsk agreements, direct negotiations with all parties to the conflict, including with representatives of the uncontrolled territories as signatories to the Minsk agreements, will provide an opportunity to restore peace in the country. Here our position has not changed,” Yurii Boyko stressed.
The politician recalled that OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE has developed a step-by-step peace plan and is ready to help the authorities take constructive steps to end the conflict.
“We call for the abandonment of statements that destroy the negotiation process. Today, the key mission of the authorities and of all responsible political forces is to prevent escalation of the conflict, restore a stable ceasefire and reduce tensions on the contact line. The Ukrainians are waiting for peace and the restoration of the country’s integrity, ” the co-chair of the OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE emphasized.
