Ukrainian Politician Believes that it Impossible to Resolve Crisis in Ukraine without Attracting International Mediators
Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend A.Gasimova / Ukrainian politician, Director of Center for Political Research of Ukraine, Mikhail Pogrebensky, believes that the internal talks will not resolve the situation in Ukraine and the best way out is to attract international mediators.
Pogrebensky reported by telephone on 25 May from Kiev that the best mediators in this conflict may be the Foreign Minister of Germany, Frank Walter Shtaynmayer, Foreign Minister of Russia, Sergey Lavrov, representatives of the US Department of State and the most ideal alternative would be the US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.
The prolonged conflict of the political elite in Ukraine will lead to an open confrontation. Recently the President of Ukraine, Victor Yushenka, issued an order dismissing the Prosecutor-General, Svyatoslav Piskun, who had been appointed to this position by the State Head himself on 26 April. The President explained his unexpected staff change through the issue that the Prosecutor-General did not vest with his parliamentarian authorities in time (Svyatoslav Piskun was member to Rada) and the law does not allow one person to hold two positions.
In reply to it, the Interior Minister of Ukraine, Vasily Pushka, stated that the Interior Ministry assumes the defense of the building and security of its personnel. Pogrebensky considers that the conflict between the law enforcement bodies and the President is aimed at the issue that the President can achieve his goals with his tools and arguments. "It will not be possible to cease this conflict without attracting international mediators and it may have difficult results for the Country," he said.
The Ukrainian media links Svyatoslav Piskun's dismissal with his unwillingness to support the President in the confrontation with the Constitutional Court. The matter is that the Constitutional Court is considering the submission of the parliamentarians from the opposition Party of Regions regarding recognizing it as illegal the President's decision to dismiss the High Rada and hold pre-term elections in the Country. In order to indemnify himself from the unwelcome results, on 30 April Yushenka issued an order dismissing three judges of the Constitutional Court.
