Moscow, February 13, 2023, 03:31 — REGNUM Former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko allegedly offered the President of Russia Vladimir Putin take the territory of Donbass, the chairman of the political council of the Ukrainian party “Opposition Platform – For Life” (OPZZH) said in an interview with the Belarusian TV channel STV Viktor Medvedchuk.
Medvedchuk claims that the former Ukrainian president asked him several times to mediate on this issue. At the same time, the chairman of the political council of the Opposition Platform for Life emphasizes that Putin’s position on Donbass was different.
According to him, in those years, the Russian leader constantly stated that Donbass is Ukraine. Medvedchuk agrees that the Minsk agreements were an attempt to give the Ukrainian side time to prepare for a future armed conflict with Russia.
The chairman of the political council of the Opposition Platform for Life also pointed out that Ukraine ignored the idea of a peaceful settlement. Medvedchuk added that the situation with the Minsk agreements speaks of “double morality” leaders of the EU countries who participated in the process, as well as Petro Poroshenko and the current president of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky.
