KIEV, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. It is important to search for a way out of the current political deadlock in Ukraine through bringing representatives of various regions of the country into the discussions, not through street actions, Sergei Chernov, the speaker of legislature of the country’s northeast Kharkov region said Wednesday at an All-Ukraine Forum of Local Councils.
The forum opened in the famous Livadia Palace in Yalta, the parliamentary press center of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea said.
The forum brought together delegates of the regional councils representing 30 million people of Ukraine. Kharkov region is a heavily industrialized part the nation and the city of Kharkov boasts one of the best indicators of higher and specialized secondary education of the population across the former Soviet Union.
“There are various viewpoints, special features of mentality, historical differences, and still all of us must work together — and will do it - to attain peace and prosperity in this country in the final run,” Chernov said.
“As for the local self-government, very unfortunately neither the Constitution in effect now nor the Constitution of 2004 accord to it the role it should duly play at the local and/or regional levels and that’s why we’ll insist on the participation of regional representatives in the negotiations at state level,” he said.
