KIEV, December 08, 23:03 /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of the Ukrainian Communist Party Petr Simonenko has called on President Viktor Yanukovich to begin dialogue with all political forces, for which ends it is necessary to set up a consultative body under the head of state.
“The crisis situation that has formed in the state is a real threat not only to stability in society but to Ukraine’s national security too,” he said in a statement on Sunday. “Political confrontation has led to violence and bloodshed, to the destabilization of the work of state administrative bodies, to foreign interference into domestic affairs of our country, which hurts the international authority of the state.” If confrontation is further aggravated, large-scale violations of public order might result in territorial disintegration of the country, to its split, he warned.
Simonenko called on the president to “begin the process of a dialogue with all political forces to find a way out of the political crisis and to overcome threats to the state’s national interests.” “The first step should be to set up under the Ukrainian president’s auspices a consultative body to solve the existing problems and to involve the country’s pot officials, leaders of the parliamentary factions, authoritative public and religious figures, people of culture,” the statement said. Simonenko expressed the hope that this initiative would find support in all strata of society and will help prevent “destructive processes with unpredictable consequences for the Ukrainian people and the state sovereignty.
