Donbass has invited Ukraine direct dialogue

the Dialogue between Donbas and Kiev would accelerate the settlement of the conflict in the region, said the Chairman of the National Council DND Vladimir Bedika.

According to him, the Ukrainian authorities a lot of talk about the need for peace, but do not perform the Minsk agreement. A word about the settlement of the conflict be empty. While President Vladimir Zelensky is not ready for direct dialogue with representatives of the DNR, and it would really help the peace process.

Bedika believes that Ukraine has not yet come to power political forces that would really want peace in the Donbass. And while France and Germany do not fulfill their obligations as participants of the “Normandy format”, putting pressure on Kyiv, to talk about peace will be difficult, RIA Novosti reported.

Kiev launched a military operation in the Donbas after the coup in February 2014. The victims of the conflict in the Donbas since April 2014 were about 13 thousand people. Since then, Minsk was signed by the three settlement agreements. However, after the armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict continue shooting.
