Vladislav Berdichevsky: New Ukrainian power’s policy is completely identical to what we saw during Poroshenko’s term

Deputy of the DPR’s People’s Council Vladislav Berdichevsky gave his commentary to the press service of the People’s Council on a statement made by Alexander Korniyenko about a position of the President of Ukraine Zelensky on granting a special status to the DPR and LPR in the Constitution of Ukraine.

ʺBoth our position and that of Vladimir Zelensky is that a special status should not be included in the Constitution,ʺ the Head of the “Servant of the People” party said.

ʺNew Ukrainian power’s policy is completely identical to what we saw during Poroshenko’s term. Ukrainian leaders’ statements, even at the highest level, leave no illusions about their desire to implement the Minsk agreements. Any statement made by Zelensky or members of his team openly demonstrates Kiev’s destructive and spiteful attitude both to the agreements it has signed and to international law in general.

A cornerstone of the Minsk agreements is the consolidation of the special status of Donbass Republics in the Ukrainian Constitution. The renunciation of this paragraph is fundamental renunciation of the Minsk agreements and the political settlement of the conflict.

At the same time, the countries that have pledged to become guarantors of the Minsk agreements – France and Germany – are ignoring Ukraine’s true goals: to continue the war, exacerbate the economic and political blockade of the DPR and LPR, totally violate human rights and create humanitarian problems in Donbass.

We are falling under the impression that any action of Ukraine – mass death of people, blockade and deprivation of civil rights – cause approval of the civilized global society.

We hope that this is not the case and that we will soon hear condemnation from the guarantor countries of the Minsk agreements, the international community and the United Nations. Angry condemnation of Ukraine for its refusal to implement UN Security Council Resolution No. S/RES/2202 (2015),ʺ the parliamentarian said.
