KIEV, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Human Rights Ombudsman Valeria Lutkovskaya on Monday called for an open political dialogue of all the parties concerned. Commenting on recent clashes between opposition supporters and law enforcers in Kiev, she said that dialogue was the only way out of the current political deadlock in Ukrainian society.
“I am calling on all the sides to stop violence immediately and refrain from any forceful actions that may lead to violence. I am convinced that an open and public political dialogue with participation of all the parties concerned is the only way out of this crisis,” Lutkovskaya said in her statement.
Lutkovskaya said there were other causes behind the violent actions such as the adoption of a package of amendments to Ukrainian laws affecting the basic human rights and liberties on January 16 this year.
She believed that such draft laws should be put to a nationwide discussion even if some of them might be in line with the legislation of the EU countries.
“The recent events (in Ukraine) are a bright evidence of what consequences may follow if this practice is not observed,” Lutkovskaya stressed.
“However, the arguments of force, batons and block stones are not bringing us closer to the conflict’s solution. They are making it worse and are narrowing the field for finding complicated compromises,” the ombudsman said.
