WARSAW, December 08, 15:24 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s opposition is ready for a compromise with the government, former head of the European parliament Jerzy Buzek told the media following his meeting with the oppositionists in Kiev.
“The opposition is ready for a compromise and does not have long-term demands. They are not expecting a new Cabinet any longer, they insist on some partial changes,” he said. “Now, they have only two basic demands - to punish those responsible for the events, which happened a week earlier, and to release all the detained.”
Once these demands are satisfied, they may begin negotiations, he said. Buzek said the Ukrainian opposition was ready to join the negotiations table and to come to a decision, which could stop the rallies and calm down the society.
“The opposition, coalition and the very Ukrainians fear the country may split, they fear stronger protests. They do not want people to distance from other people,” he said. Buzek added currently the nation was arguing which integration to chose from - with Russia or with the EU.
