KIEV, December 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Arbuzov says the government and the opposition should enter into negotiations to find common language.
“It is very complicated to comment on the statements made by the people in Maidan Nezalezhnosti /Independence Square/. I believe those statements should be left for consideration of politicians,” he said in an interview with Ukraine’s 5th television channel. “The Cabinet’s official position is that it is necessary to find a common language regarding settlement of the existing problems and to stabilise the economic and social situations in the country.”
“I believe, the situation, developing behind the windows, is our problem,” he said. “The problem that we failed to find a common language for discussions and the people went to the streets. This should not have happened. Now we should calm down and find mutual understanding.”
The first deputy prime minister stressed the government was interested in stabilising the situation.
