KIEV, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s authorities and opposition have failed to come to an agreement on how to settle the situation in the south-east of the country, Oleksandr Yefremov, head of the Party of Regions faction in the parliament, said on Thursday, April 17.
“The sides could not come to an agreement on the language issue because of the position assumed by the Svoboda (Freedom) faction,” Yefremov said.
“We are trying to settle the situation in the eastern regions of Ukraine peacefully. For two and a half hours we have discussed the contents of a memorandum, but achieved no compromise so far,” the MP said.
“I hope we will find a formula that will consolidate society,” parliament-appointed acting President Oleksandr Turchynov said.
