KIEV, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. A nationwide roundtable meeting on the settlement of the current political crisis in Ukraine should yield a decision on the formation of a technical government, leader of the opposition party Batkivshchina’s (Fatherland) faction in the national parliament Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Tuesday.
“As part of efforts to settle the current political crisis we must take an open decision to form a technical government, to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union, to resume negotiations on a loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and to pass a number of legislative acts preventing power usurpation,” Yatsenyuk told journalists. He said that the incumbent president was unwilling to make concessions and called on Ukrainians to come to Kiev’s Independence Square again.
Ukraine’s opposition ignored Tuesday’s roundtable meeting initiated by Ukraine’s former President Leonid Kravchuk, which drew only representatives from the country’s authorities. Leader of the opposition party UDAR and member of the national parliament Vitaly Klitchko said the opposition had not been invited to this meeting.
Another attempt to hold a roundtable meeting involving representative from both the authorities and the opposition will be taken on Wednesday, December 11.
