The leader of Batkivschina party has criticized the statements of her fellow member Nadiya Savchenko and severely condemned her readiness for direct negotiations with the heads of the DPR and LPR Zakharchenko and Plotnitskiy.
Yulia Tymoshenko said that Savchenko’s idea means nothing but humiliation for Ukraine.
'Negotiations with terrorists mean humiliation for Ukraine. A direct dialogue with the leaders of the self-proclaimed republics means legalization of fighters. We’ll never settle the military conflict in this way. Any negotiations with terrorists and puppets have never led to positive results,' Tymoshenko said.
Tymoshenko believes that it would be more correct to use the world’s experience in this situation. In addition, Tymoshenko strongly disagrees with the wording and the status of what is happening in the Donbass.
'The conflict in the Donbass is not an anti-terrorist operation, but a real war,' Tymoshenko said.
