On August 13, Vladimir Zelensky signed a decree № 596/2019, which says about the dismissal of Roman Bessmertnyy from the duties of a representative of the political subgroup in the Tripartite Contact Group on Donbass issues.
This decision Roman Bessmertnyy commented live:
«Now - when no one is explaining anything. It was noted that there was no time for a meeting. But the reason is no secret. Because I, working in the Minsk subgroup, said what needs to be done. I said that it is impossible not to hold a military parade on Independence Day - it needs to be held. I said that you do not need to call Putin - you need to act. I don’t understand why they don’t respond at the front when the shelling takes place. I correctly said: it is necessary to do so. Perhaps this position is not to the court. Unfortunately, I lost two months. The other day I had to introduce her in Minsk. No, I won’t voice it now, because earlier my projects were discredited... The President and the Office have a desire, but no experience. There were times when I honestly said: I do not believe that this will work. But he is the president, he has the right to appoint and dismiss».
The position with which the contact group is going to negotiate must be united and united. It should reflect the goal that the country faces in the difficult situation that exists. It is clear that there are so many people, so many opinions, but in cases where the lives of people, the territorial integrity of the country, political rating and much more depend on these negotiations, the unified position of the Ukrainian representatives in Minsk must be maintained. What do you think?
