As we have previously warned, Putin used multilateral international negotiations on restoring peace in Donbas as a "smoke screen" for the deployment of his military aggression against Ukraine.
Svoboda closely watches the information pertaining to the 17 August Berlin meeting of the Heads of MFAs from Ukraine, Germany, France and Russia. We are not against the attempts to promote resolution of the current situation by means of diplomacy. However, we stress that the enemy systematically uses international negotiations in order to strengthen its positions on the occupied Ukrainian territories, regroup the terrorists and fortify their stations. There is no doubt that the same thing happened during the last negotiations.
The breakdown of the coalition is the path to re-election of the Parliament: "Svoboda" decided to withdraw from the coalition with the sole purpose - to create a legal basis for holding early parliamentary elections (article 90 of the Constitution of Ukraine). Re-election of this Parliament is a requirement of the Revolution of Dignity, which is supported by most Ukrainians. Politicians must fulfil this requirement.
"The fraction of "Svoboda" supports the National Security and Defence Council's decision to re-start the anti-terrorist operation. However, we are surprised that the Parliament has not received from the President and the National Security Council a request to introduce Martial law in Luhansk and Donetsk regions. We believe that Martial law in those areas will show the Ukrainian society that the Government is doing everything possible to defeat the invader." - said the Leader of Svoboda Oleh Tiahnybok at the Parliament on 1 July 2014.
The events in Kharkiv, Donetsk and Luhansk, which were initiated by those who pioneer the so-called federalization, is the next stage of the Kremlin's plan to organize a separatist rebellion, overthrow the constitutional order and destroy Ukraine's territorial integrity. This is the continuation of Putin's aggressive strategy against Ukraine, which was previously realised in Crimea. The law enforcement, militia and SSU have to act decisively to stop those criminal actions and to use all necessary, legal means to supress the coven of Putin's agents" - stated the Leader of the All-Ukrainian Union "Svoboda" Oleh Tiahnybok.
The attempt of Crimea's annexation by the Russian Federation is the act of unhidden aggression, encroachment on state sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country and Russia's brutal attempt to keep Ukraine in the area of its imperial geopolitical interests. Russia acts as an international terrorist who captured more than two million citizens of Ukraine and continues to issue more and more unreasonable demands.
