The Deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada Oksana Syroid in the air “112 Ukraine”
The meeting in Minsk will not help to solve the conflict in the East of Ukraine, it is necessary to look for instruments, where Russia will be considered as a party to the conflict, not a peacemaker. Such opinion to the correspondent of “112 Ukraine” said the Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Oksana Syroid.
“We should look for a tool that will really help to solve the conflict. It can’t be the Minsk agreement, because they view Russia as peacemaker, and not as a party to the conflict. Under such circumstances Ukraine will never be able to solve the problem with Russia,” she said.
The Syroid added that the recent statement of Russia with respect to missile strike if Ukraine will conduct exercises over the Black sea, is evidence that countries are in wartime. “The statement shows that we are in wartime Russia… since she first occupied and then illegally annexed the Crimea, says that the water belongs to it, and the sea, and perceives it as a threat. This is all the signs of war. I don’t see how to respond, except in wartime,” she said.
As reported, Russia threatened missile strike in the case of the Ukraine military exercises near the Crimea. The warning contained in the letter of the Ministry of defense of Russia, addressed to the military attaché at the Embassy of Ukraine in the Russian Federation. As reported in the Kremlin, the situation is monitored personally by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.
In response, the NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said that the sovereign airspace of the Russian Federation in the Black sea ends up in the middle of the Kerch Strait, and there is Ukraine to carry out missile tests is not going to.
On November 26, the General staff announced plans to conduct exercises the Air forces of Ukraine in the period from 1 to 2 December 2016 in the southern part of Ukraine.
