Ukrainian Politician View European Union as Mediator for Settlement of Political Crisis in Kiev
Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr A. Gasimova / Politician Oles Doniy, the director of the Research Centre of Political Values, believes that the European Union (EU) can mediate in settlement of the crisis arisen in Ukraine.
Doniy reported on 30 April that he did not support a coercive settlement of the crisis and said that he considered a compromise to be the most favourable solution. The politician did not rule out the possibility of any third party (the EU, for instance) to set the date for elections.
"The time should suit both parties and the elections should be held as transparently as possible with the participation of all political sides. After the date for elections is fixed the documents must be signed by the president, prime minister and the head of the Supreme Council. The president is permitted to cancel its second decree later. The Supreme Court will begin the work in this connection and it is important that the Council approve several documents corresponding to the legislation," he said.
Doniy believes that the crisis in Ukraine was caused by the imperfection of the legislation and equality of the expostulating political forces. "It is evident that after the "Orange Revolution" both political and economic forces got interested in redistribution of their positions in economics and politics. However, neither the winner nor the loser benefitted from the 2-year long redistribution," the politician said.
"The polls display that if the re-elections took place, the Prime Minister Victor Yanukovich would win. At the same time, the Party of Regions would not like to take a risk, as it could harm its powerful political force image," Doniy stressed.
Doniy believes that the compromise could be achieved by means of international experts. "For the time-being the parties do not show any inclination to a concession suitable for one another. I think the crisis will not be resolved without re-elections," Doniy urged.
