KIEV, February 01, 20:54 /ITAR-TASS/. Vitali Klitschko, leader of the opposition party “UDAR” (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform), said mediation of high-level international representatives was indispensable to settle the situation in Ukraine.
At a meeting with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the sidelines of the 50th Munich Security Conference, Klitschko said, “The mediation of authoritative international representatives, who will be guarantors of agreements with the Ukrainian authorities, may be effective to settle the political crisis.”
Within the Munich Conference Klitschko also met European Parliament President Martin Schulz and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. The opposition leader is expected to confer with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.
Earlier, head of the Batkivshchina faction in the parliament Arseny Yatsenyuk said there was no need to send a U.N. special envoy for mediation between the authorities and the opposition.
“At the moment we should solve Ukrainian problems by direct contacts with Western partners,” Yatsenyuk said at a meeting with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
“Theoretically a U.N. or OSCE mission will be possible when the situation reaches the deadlock,” he said.
