KIEV, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s political opposition believes that public activists and EU officials should take part in its dialogue with the authorities regarding the possible ways out of the political crisis, Vitaly Klichko, the leader of UDAR party told reporters Thursday.
“The roundtable should bring together the representatives of society who enjoy people’s trust and high-level representatives of the European community,” he said.
Former speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Arseny Yatsenyuk, who chairs the Batkivshchina party of Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, now doing a jail term, said the opposition has three questions regarding the possible negotiations on ending the economic and political crisis.
The questions concern who will conduct the talks, what high-rank EU officials will participate in them and what the expected result should be.
Yatsenyuk underlined the condition on which the leading oppositionists might take part in the roundtable, namely, endorsement of their participation in it by protesters out on the streets of Kiev.
President Viktor Yanukovich on Wednesday came up with a proposal on holding the roundtable that would bring together public activists, oppositionists and the Ukrainian clergy.
