MOSCOW, July 24. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes the crisis in Ukraine can be settled in the immediate future but the events may become even more dramatic than now if the sides show reluctance for compromise solutions.
As he spoke to Slovenian Radio and Television on the eve of a visit to Ljubljana, Medvedev said he could see practical medium-term prospects for settling the Ukrainian crisis.
He specified conditions for peace and tranquillity.
"The government (in Kiev TASS) should display flexibility in the format of the Minsk accords and pass the decisions they are supposed to pass, including the autonomous status of southeastern regions," Medvedev said. "Quite naturally, the (Donbass) self-defence forces and the political forces active in the southeast should display ability for compromise and come to terms with the Kiev authorities."
"However, we'll be eyewitnesses of a very discouraging process unless this happens," he said. "The process is already very saddening but it can acquire a truly dramatic character.".
