KIEV, August 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The time has come for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fulfil his election promise to the country’s citizens - to establish peace in Donbass, leader of the Ukrainian Choice movement Viktor Medvedchuk said on Friday.
Medvedchuk writes in his article posted on the Ukrainian Choice website, “Sixteen major Ukrainian, Russian and Western businessmen have called for stopping the war in Ukraine,” the press service of the civic movement said. “We, business leaders of Ukraine, Russia and other countries, urge our governments to cooperate... We are ready to offer any support in our power... Negotiations, not war are a way out of this most difficult situation,” the appeal says.
Head of Unilever Paul Polman, economist and Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, Virgin founder Richard Branson, art patron Viktor Pinchuk and many others have supported the appeal.
The Ukrainian Choice leader said the main task for Poroshenko during the first year of his presidency is to establish of peace in Donbas. This view was voiced by 86% of respondents, polled by the TNS company.
“It is important to note that only 36% of Ukrainians positively assessed Petro Poroshenko’s activity in the first month of his presidency,” Medvedchuk writes. “At the May 25 presidential election, Poroshenko got the huge confidence credit because he promised to restore peace in the country’s east. Now the time has come to fulfil this promise, otherwise the president faces the risk of losing confidence not only in Donbass, but also across Ukraine,” the Ukrainian Choice leader said.
