KIEV, December 7 (Itar-Tass) - The Ukrainian Opposition has ignored the authorities’ invitation to come to the negotiating table, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov told foreign media on Friday. Some extracts of the interview have been published by the government’s public relations department.
Azarov said there had been not a single signal from the Opposition yet to the effect it might be prepared to participate in a round-table discussion over ways of settling the complex political situation.
“I am prepared for talks,” Azarov said. “Let us start a dialogue that would let them leave for home. Everybody has families and children. May they take care of their daily affairs. Also, they surely have jobs. What’s the need for spending so much time there?”
There has been no response from the leaders of the Opposition or other participants in the protest demonstrations to the invitation to enter into negotiations.
“Moreover, according to our sources these leaders have no control of the street protests. There are very different groups and very different people. Regrettably, there are too many radicals, who in fact have staged most of the provocations in the country and in the capital.
