ULAN-BATOR, June 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Speaker of Russia’s Federation Council upper house of parliament Valentina Matviyenko welcomes Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s plans for peaceful settlement of the conflict in the southeast of the country, but she believes that these statements should be fixed in state documents.

“It is needed to realise that no one already believes in words, but believes in actions, facts, and we would like positive signals which are coming from the Ukrainian president now to be fixed in state documents and so that no one doubts that they will be fulfilled,” the speaker of the upper house of Russian parliament told ITAR-TASS.

“There is no alternative to peaceful settlement of current crisis in Ukraine and it is clear for anybody,” Matviyenko said.

“Any peaceful plan can be welcomed, because finally there is understanding that this decision is needed,” the Federation Council speaker said, adding that “One step forward and then two steps back cannot be made.”

“We should take all effort to fulfil this plan and mostly important is that people cannot be intimidated, blackmailed or some additional conditions cannot be put forth, but “it is needed” to bring them (all parties in Ukraine) to negotiating table no matter who likes someone or not,” the Russian senator noted.

In her view, only when all parties to current conflict get down to negotiating table, it is possible to reach agreements on a complete halt to any combat actions: an end to Kiev’s military operations, combat actions by the opposite party to the conflict and a shift to peace process.
