KIEV, May 11 /ITAR-TASS/. Communist Party of Ukraine has not been invited to the so called round table of national unity which acting Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk proposed to hold on May 14, the party’s Secretary Georgy Buyko told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“Yatsenyuk likes words but we do not see any actions,” he said. Dialogue is impossible when the Communist faction has been “illegally dismissed” from discussions in the country’s parliament, Verkhovna Rada, Buyko believes.
He noted the need “to immediately cease the anti-terrorist operation in the East, which people describe as punitive”. Illegal bands that crept over the whole country from the Maidan should be disarmed prior to any dialogue in the parliament, he added.
Yatsenyuk announced his round table proposal on May 9 without revealing any details as to who will participate.
