Authorities seek compromise in talks with separatists - Yarovy
During negotiations with the separatists, who seized government buildings in Donetsk and Luhansk, the search for a compromise is underway, Deputy Interior Minister of Ukraine Serhiy Yarovy said at a briefing at the Cabinet of Ministers on Thursday, Ukrinform reports.
"Negotiations continue, we try to find a compromise to liberate the occupied buildings,” Yarovy said. At the same time, he noted that demands of separatists, in particular regarding the federalization, are unacceptable. "It is clear that in the east of Ukraine there is an attempt to implement the Crimean option, and everyone knows who initiates it and what for," the Deputy Interior Minister said. According to him, now in the negotiation process for the release of state buildings a number of people's deputies are involved. "The authorities tend to find a solution that would eliminate the use of force, although this option is still in force," Yarovy said. As reported, the pro-Russian activists hold administrative buildings in Donetsk and Luhansk for several days, demanding a referendum on self-determination of the regions.
