Medvedchuk against blockade of Donbas

If the blockade happens, Ukraine will have to forget about the territories of Donbass, said the leader of Ukrainian choice.

Today Turchinov called for a total blockade of Donbass. According to him, “here the relevant experience of Croatia, which in early 1990s was similar to the Ukraine situation.”

“I would really like to see this initiative as quickly as possible heard in Brussels and Washington, where the Minsk agreements are considered uncontested. Even the embargo that exists today, not to mention the prohibition of “any movement of goods and cargo”, not envisaged by the Minsk agreements”, – he said.

According to Medvedchuk, if the blockage happens, Ukraine will have to forget about these areas.

“Because we are talking about our citizens in the Donbas, we are talking about companies that are registered in Ukraine, pay taxes and are entitled to protection and support of the Ukrainian state”, – considers the leader of the Ukrainian choice.

The politician also commented on the attacks Turchinov in his address, in particular, the statement “unclear status” and that Medvedchuk “will not bring benefits to Minsk.”

“…My status is known to everyone who is even slightly interested in this subject. This is the status of a person performing their civic duty, unlike those who speak about the debt, but does nothing”, – says Medvedchuk.

“And in this capacity I have benefited Ukraine, taking part in the organization of the liberation of more than four hundred Ukrainians, who were able to return home to their families, thanks to the negotiations which I conducted with the leadership of the ORDO and the astronomical clock, as well as the leadership of the Russian Federation, “a close relationship” (as it calls Turchinov) whose President, Vladimir Putin, I use and intend to use in the future to establish peace and humanitarian issues for the benefit of Ukraine and Russia, – he explained.

Medvedchuk added that the future of Ukraine sees the “restoration of economic relations with Russia and CIS countries, the preservation of the territorial integrity and unity of Ukraine through the transition to the Federal structure of the state, ensuring peaceful settlement of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine by strict implementation of the Minsk agreements”.

Earlier, Medvedchuk said, that without lifting the blockade reintegration of Donbass impossible.
