The self-proclaimed head of the Donetsk national Republic (DND) Alexander Zakharchenko said about the readiness to hold a meeting with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in the event that he will perform his two terms. However, Kiev is unlikely to satisfy these requirements.
During the meeting with foreign journalists Zakharchenko said that Kiev is first, must withdraw all units of the APU, the interior Ministry and other armed groups from the territory of “the former Donetsk region.
“Second, during the withdrawal not to engage in looting and to release all persons convicted on political charges,” added the head of DND. A fragment of his speech posted on YouTube.
According to Zakharchenko, in the case of implementation of these requirements, he is ready to meet only with Poroshenko, but with any other Ukrainian politician “equal in status”. The exception is the head of DNR made only to the NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov, who Zakharchenko called the culprit of the beginning of the war in the Donbass.
The President added that a meeting can be held on the border of the DNI in the area of Dnipropetrovsk and Kharkiv regions.
Earlier, to hold talks with the leadership of the republics of Donbass, said the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Hope Savchenko. According to her, this must be done for the release of captured Ukrainian servicemen.
