'No country in the world has recognized either the annexation of Crimea, or the republics. Therefore it is necessary to hold negotiations, but there still are basic agreements. Ukraine will do everything to follow them,' Hrytsak said.

The head of the SBU Vasiliy Hrytsak commented on Nadiya Savchenko’s statement about her readiness to negotiate with the LDPR on prisoners’ release.

'We need to hold dialogues, but they are carried out within the framework of the trilateral contact group of the Normandy format, but changing of Russian tactics is to lower the events, which occur in the east, to a regional level. Top political leaders, the president and leaders of the self-proclaimed republics should come to the negotiating table. As for me, I think it's humiliating. No country in the world has recognized either the annexation of Crimea, or the republics. Therefore it is necessary to hold negotiations, but there still are basic agreements. Ukraine will do everything to follow them,' Hrytsak said.

Savchenko believes that it’s necessary to establish a direct connection to the LPR and DPR, and is ready to participate in these negotiations personally. Savchenko introduced three steps, which could reduce or remove the tension in the Donbass. The SBU said it didn’t support Savchenko’s idea.

As reported earlier by 1492news.com, Avakov promises to resign in case Donbass establishes 'people's militia'. The minister said he did not accept the Minsk agreements’ condition of establishing 'people's militia.' Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov is sure that the possible establishment of the so-called 'people's militia' in the Donbass contradicts to the Constitution of Ukraine and Ukrainian legislation.
