“There were several questions to which we have not been given clear answers. There was no clarity about the parties to the talks and who will be responsible for which things,” Lukin told Itar-Tass upon his return from Kiev. “The situation changes very quickly. New personages appear, and the arrangements are very difficult to record,” Lukin acknowledged.
Earlier, presidential representative in parliament Yuri Miroshnichenko said that for implementing the crisis settlement agreement in Ukraine the signatures of the Ukrainian party, and not international mediators are the most important ones.
“I won't comment on the position of foreign representatives,” he said. “Foreign mediators are free to sign or not sign the document. It is the support of the Ukrainian people that really counts,” he said.
Miroshnichenko said that work was in progress on restoring the 2004 Constitution. He recalled that earlier Yanukovich issued a statement to initiate an early presidential election, restoration of the 2004 constitution and the creation of a government of national unity. He said that all political signals have been issued and now it is up to the legislators to vote.
In the meantime, the Polish and German ministers met with those present in Independence Square and then went for another round of talks with Yanukovich.
As an Itar-Tass correspondent reports from Warsaw, the Polish Foreign Minister’s spokesman Marcin Wojciechowski posted on Twitter that the crowd in Independence Square in Kiev welcomed the conclusion of an agreement to resolve the conflict in the country. Also, those present voted for the conclusion of an agreement on the conflict settlement by the three opposition leaders and President Yanukovich, Wojciechowski said.
