KIEV, February 05, 7:46 /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union expressed readiness to delegate high-level mediators in talks between the opposition and the authorities to resolve Ukraine’s political crisis, the leader of Udar (Punch) party, boxer-turned-politician, Vitali Klitschko, said on Tuesday after a meeting with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
“We discussed the situation in Ukraine,” he said. “The main thing is to take real steps towards resolving the crisis. I noted that first of all the parliament should adopt an act on the return to the 2004 Constitution. This will allow to demonopolise power in the country.”
“As concerned the talks with President Yanukovich, Mrs Ashton assured that Europe was ready to delegate high-level mediators in talks between the opposition and the authorities,” Klitschko said.
On Tuesday, during a break in a parliamentary session Klitschko met with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich to discuss Ukraine’s return to the 2004 Constitution.
Yanukovich noted that this issue should be resolved at talks in the parliament and that the opposition “also bore the responsibility” for the situation in the country, Klitschko said.
