I do not think that Russia should be put there – Kravchuk on the membership of the Russian Federation to the Crimean platform

October 21, 2020

The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group on resolving the situation in Donbass, Leonid Kravchuk, in an interview with the Obozrevatel media agency said that at first Russia should not be involved in the Crimean platform.

“I don’t think that Russia should be put there, at least in the first couples. The President has already said that he discussed this issue with countries of great political weight. And when Ukraine will determine the goals, tasks and forms of interaction, and agree with these countries on creation of such a platform, then it will be possible to raise this issue with Russia and involve it. But I cannot say that Russia will agree. The world should not look at what Russia wants. The world should take into account the interests of the entire world community”,- he said.

He noted that this platform can become an element of pressure on the aggressor country.
