KIEV, January 26, /ITAR-TASS/. A state of emergency is a measure of last resort and is outside the agenda as of now, Mikhail Chechetov, the first deputy head of the ruling Party of Regions faction in the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada, or parliament, told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“The state of emergency is the last-resort measure,” he said. “Now the authorities have focused efforts on the localization of the conflict be means of the negotiating process to prevent victims from among people.”
A conflict, in his words, “hurts not politicians but innocent people, first of all the youth.” “There are many young people who are simply lost and zombified by the mass media,” he noted. “And these very people would be hurt, not politician who would use then as cannon fodder, staying behind the scenes.” So, the issue of a state of emergency is not on the agenda and it can be considered only in theoretical terms, he added.
“As of now, the authorities and politician are focusing the entire intellectual and political resource on negotiations in a bid to find a way out of the current conflict situation,” Chechetov stressed, adding that with this aim in mind, President Yanukovich had proposed a compromise package. “Now the ball on the opposition’s side of the pitch,” he said.
