KIEV, January 15 /TASS/. Peaceful settlement is the only way to end the Donbas conflict, Nestor Shufrich, a deputy from Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc, said on Thursday commenting the adoption of the president’s mobilization decree by parliament.
“Mobilization will only aggravate negotiations and create additional tensions in Ukrainian society,” Shufrich said. He does not see any alternative to the peaceful settlement of the Donbas conflict.
“Under the mobilization announced today Ukrainian families will have to send their children and fathers to the front in response to a summons to fight against whom? The Kiev authorities have not clearly defined the external threat. A question arises how a threat can be coming from a state with whom we are actively trading and in whose territory we are selling sweets, including to soldiers,” Shufrich went on to say.
According to him, the authorities needed military rhetoric to cover the consequences of their actions in the social sphere and economy. “Instead of creating tensions in society it is necessary to search for ways of resolving the problem. Mobilization is unlikely to solve them. That is why we told the authorities that if they wanted a war, they should start with themselves,” Shufrich stressed.
