KIEV, July 09. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian presidential administration said Wednesday official Kiev will not hold talks with representatives of the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics in south-eastern Ukraine, a deputy head of the Ukrainian presidential administration Valery Chalyi said Wednesday.
“There is no talk yet about any official negotiations with terrorists, this is inadmissible,” Chalyi said.
Kiev calls federalization supporters in south-eastern Ukraine's breakaway Luhansk and Donetsk regions "terrorists".
“The contact group that already gathered earlier with participation of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), (Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail) Zurabov and (former Ukrainian president) Leonid Kuchma is ready to continue these consultations,” he said.
Russia is not a party to the Ukrainian conflict and renders assistance to the OSCE as part of the contact group to settle the situation in Ukraine’s embattled south-east.
