Tips Zelensky

Thus, for example, the fifth President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, advises Zelensky to be alone with the leader of Russia.

“Sincerely advised to avoid meeting eye to eye with Putin, or, if this cannot be done, not to succumb to his KGB-shnye manipulation and flattery, playing on the emotions and the shortcomings of the President”, – said Poroshenko.

According to Poroshenko, Zelensky in Paris is to bring “another compelling photos, video footage, satellite photos, Russian military IDs, passports, photo evidence of the presence of the latest Russian weapons and equipment on the territory of the Ukrainian Donbass”.

The position of the President

Himself Zelensky said that he intends for the Normandy summit in Paris to discuss the timing of the return of the Eastern border of Ukraine under control.

“I am confident that we will raise the issue about the format and timing of the transfer of the Ukrainian border under Ukrainian control,” he said.

Among other issues that Zelensky plans to discuss the exchange of “all for all”, a withdrawal of all illegal armed groups and the holding of local elections.

December 7, the President will hold a closed meeting of the Council of national security and defense before the meeting “channel four”.

“Red lines

Opponents of the President are more concerned about what he will do in Paris. The foreign Minister outlined the “red lines” in the upcoming negotiations.

“For us, the red line changes to the Constitution. Also the red lines that we will not allow the influence on our foreign policy priorities; boundary (now on the uncontrolled territory of Donbass) must be Ukrainian; impossible to hold elections while there are armed men and illegal armed groups, and so on,” he said.

He also stressed the requirement of Ukraine on the establishment of Ukrainian control at the Ukrainian-Russian border in the occupied parts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

“You can discuss different options – for example, a joint monitoring with the OSCE. But still the control over the border should be,” he said.

The Minister also said that the policy position of Kiev is the lack of direct negotiations between Ukraine and the self-proclaimed “authorities” of the occupied territories.

“It’s also one of the red lines, which have already been discussed President Zelensky”, he added.

The statements of opponents

Ukrainian opposition announced its “red lines” before the meeting in Paris.

Among them:

– no compromises for a unitary state and no federalization

– no compromise on European and Euro-Atlantic course

– no political action, in particular elections on the temporarily occupied territories of Donbass without fulfilling the conditions of security and de-occupation

– no compromise on de-occupation and the return of the Crimea in Ukraine

– no suspension of international lawsuits against Russia.

The team Zelensky in response to assure we won’t surrender.

He would sign in Paris?

The parties have agreed on a final document after the summit.

“Leaders celebrate the successful breeding at the three sites and propose to define the following points of breeding. Leaders celebrate a successful exchange that took place, and offer to expedite the next stage of the exchange, including the idea all in all. Further, leaders need to define the following areas for clearance, and so on.

That is a very short document at the end which says that the leaders authorize their bargaining teams to continue the preparation of the next (initiatives). This is a common phrase, which will become a document only after the meeting of heads of state,” – said Pristayko.

The Minister stressed that we are not talking about principled decisions, changing the order or content of the Minsk agreements.

Plan B

Zelensky is ready to “build a wall” in the Donbas if peace talks with Russia fail, said assistant to the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak.

“We won’t spend a lot of time if we don’t see on the Russian side, the desire to fulfill the Minsk agreements. We will not wait for years, we have identified a limited time,” said Yermak.

He did not specify how much time you are willing to wait the President, but informed in conversations with the team Zelensky informally sounded that clarity in relation to the peaceful settlement should appear in the first half of 2020.

“And of course, I want to say that Ukraine will do everything we can to end the war and achieve peace through diplomacy. But we, of course, there are “plan B,” said Yermak.

According to him, “plan B” is to “build a wall and move on”.

“If we do not see today a willingness on the part of Russia to go to the peace process, to the implementation of the Minsk agreements, well, let’s then not in a figurative plan to build a wall and move on. We have friends, involve and learn from their experience. I mean, first and foremost Israel,” explained assistant to the President.

However, he stressed that the President’s team is now set for successful negotiations.

Also Ermak said that in case of a successful Channel summit Vladimir Zelensky intends to submit to Parliament a bill to extend the period of validity of the law on local self-government in uncontrolled territory of Donbass.

“At this summit we are ready to introduce to Parliament a bill to extend the operation of this act. And early next year we are ready to propose changes to this law,” said Yermak. Although previously Zelensky promised to draft a new bill on the special status of Donbass before the New year.
