KIEV, April 23./TASS/. The position of Ukraine’s President-elect Vladimir Zelensky on the status of Donbass and amnesty to participants in the conflict, may postpone peace in the region indefinitely, the political council chief of Ukraine’s Opposition Platform - For Life party, Viktor Medvedchuk, said on Tuesday.
"Two days before the election, Zelensky said ‘no’ in an interview with RBK in reply to the question whether he supported a special status for Donbass. [When asked] - Will you sign an amnesty? [He said] - No, I won’t sign it. This means that if this position persists, the issue of peace will be postponed indefinitely," Medvedchuk told 112 Ukraine television.
