На встрече "нормандской четверки" наибольшим давление будет на украинскую сторону, - Соболев

At the meeting, “Norman Quartet” the greatest pressure will be on the Ukrainian side, this broadcast channel “112 Ukraine” said MP of the faction “Batkivschyna” Sergei Sobolev.

“I have such anxiety was not looking for any negotiations in the “Norman format”. Today I’m really worried about the fate of the country most in these negotiations, because I believe that the pressure to be taken on the Ukrainian side, will be greatest. I think that the position taken by the PACE, should be the only mechanism to further address these issues. If there is an iota of deviation, that is, first, political things, and then security, I believe that the situation in Transnistria, it would be “sophomoric” compared to what awaits us in the territory (in the Donbas – ed.)”, – said the MP.
