KIEV, December 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of the parliamentary faction of Ukraine’s ruling Regions Party, Alexander Yefremov, made a proposal to the opposition on Friday to unblock the Verkhovna Rada and to sit down to the table of negotiations.
“The Rada should be unblocked because it’s the place where every MP can take the floor,” he told a news briefing.
He indicated that the MPs representing the Regions Party and EU officials had had a meeting earlier in the day.
“We drew an unambiguous conclusion that all the problems should be resolved at the table of negotiations, not by blocking the parliament’s activity,” Yefremov said. “Yet the problem is the opposition vehemently rejects the proposals to sit down to negotiations.”
Representatives of the opposition said in their turn it was impossible to start any talks until fulfillment of their demands “to stop political repressions and to release all the political prisoners beginning with Yulia Timoshenko /a former prime minister currently serving a jail term for past occupational abuses - Itar-Tass/ and ending with the those who were detained over the past few days.”
“Then we could possible speak about talks on a mechanism of early presidential and parliamentary elections, resignation of the cabinet of ministers, and the setting up of a new cabinet,” said Alexander Turchinov, Timoshenko’s closest ally in the Batkivshchina party.
