The leader of the Zelensky party is looking for new ways to return Donbas

Solving the armed conflict in the Donbas only by adopting laws will not work, because such a desire is “not for all participants in this process,” said the leader of the Servant of the People Dmitry Razumkov. According to him, diplomacy, sanctions and the solution of domestic political problems are needed to resolve the situation. The party has repeatedly called the end of the war a priority policy of the current government.

The leader of the party “Servant of the People” and the main contender for the post of Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Dmitry Razumkov called the conflict in the south-east of Ukraine a key problem in the country and expressed the opinion that restoring peace in the Donbas by legal means would not work.

“We all would like peace to come, and Donbas and Crimea to return to Ukraine. Unfortunately, this is not solved by the laws, ”he told Kommersant.

According to him, for the return of the “temporarily occupied territories,” a complex of measures is needed: diplomacy sanctions pressure and the resolution of domestic policy issues, including the fight against corruption, information policy, the economy, infrastructure and social policy.

The leader of the presidential party assured that the Ukrainian side wants to end this war, but this desire is observed: “not for all participants in this process.”

  • The issue of granting special status for the Donbas will be discussed within the walls of the Rada, he said.

  • Kyiv regards the Donbas and Crimea as occupied territories and calls Russia as an “occupant”. At the same time, Moscow repeatedly assured that a referendum on the reunification of the Crimea with Russia in 2014 was held in accordance with international requirements, and now the peninsula is a Russian territory. As for Donbas, the Russian side rejects statements about the presence of its military there and recognizes this region as Ukrainian.

  • Razumkov said earlier that President Vladimir Zelensky intends to end the armed conflict in the Donbas and is taking concrete steps for this.

  • “To stop the war is the main task of any political the force that is going to the polls today [to the Verkhovna Rada]. I am sure that both our strategy and the positions voiced by the president today will give us the opportunity to stop the war and then stop it, ”he said on the“ 1 + 1 ”channel shortly before the elections to the Ukrainian parliament.

The leader of the presidential party is convinced that the position of Zelensky on the situation in the Donbas "gives the confidence to resolve the conflict."

  • He noted that with the coming to power of a new a leader in the Minsk process, the Ukrainian group intensified, the meeting of the “Norman Quartet” (France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine) took place at the advisory level in Paris on July 12, and a telephone conversation of Zelensky with the Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

  • Washington is pinning high hopes on the new The Ukrainian government on the issue of settling the conflict in the Donbas. Late last month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking at the Washington Economic The club, expressed the hope that the emergence of new people at the head of Ukraine would contribute to the promotion of more creative ideas to resolve the armed conflict in the east of the country. He also stressed that the US is interacting with the new Ukrainian government.

  • “The conflict in Ukraine is genuine. They are still fighting. Not every day, but many. This is completely realistic, ”the US foreign minister said.

  • Speaking about the reunification of the Crimea with Russia, Pompeo once again noted that the United States is not going to recognize it. “The US position is that this is unacceptable,” Pompeo said, stressing that “Crimea must return” to Ukraine.

Along with the termination of the armed conflict in the east of the country, the return of Crimea to Ukraine is one of the keys provisions of Zelensky’s policy.

  • He spoke about this back in May in his inaugural speech. In response, the Russian leader’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, stressed that such a question about the annexation of the peninsula to Ukraine “does not exist and cannot exist,” since Crimea is a Russian region.

  • However, at the end of last month, the so-called the permanent representative of the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky in Crimea, Anton Korniyevich, told the Segodnya publication that Kyiv is considering the possibility of creating an international platform for negotiating the status of Crimea. He said that the peninsula "must be kept on the agenda of the world community."

  • The permanent representative stressed that so far there was no separate platform or platform for discussing the ownership of the Crimea. He linked this to the position of Russia, which refuses to negotiate on this issue.

  • When asked by the journalist about the format in which the conversation about the return of Crimea can take place, Kornijevich answered that there is no single recipe and the question can and should be discussed.

  • “Will it be Budapest +?” Maybe. Yes, because these states have guaranteed our security. Will it be “Normandy +”? Perhaps because these states are already involved in resolving the situation in Donbas. Plus Turkey, more active US participation. This can be discussed. But first, Ukraine needs to come up with such an initiative, ”the permanent representative of Zelensky explained

He also expressed the opinion that during the first time of its existence, the site could do without the participation of Russia.

As a way to return the peninsula, he proposed sanctions pressure on companies helping to build the Crimean Bridge.
