Medvedchuk urged to continue the negotiation process on the release of the detainees

Anatoly Peshko, the first vice-president of the Ukrainian Economic Academy, addressed an open letter to the chairman of the political council of the Opposition Platform – For Life, People’s Deputy Viktor Medvedchuk with a request to continue the negotiation process with representatives of ORDLO to release the detainees. We are talking about four Ukrainians, whom the authorities of the “LPNR” are ready to transfer, having announced this on January 16.Peshko wrote about this on his Facebook page. Peshko stressed that in the second year of the presidency of VolodymyrZelensky, it became obvious that peace in Donbass and the return of detainees home are being postponed, and Ukraine has been systematically rejected since April in the trilateral contact group. “At the same time, they trust you much more in ORDLO than the Ukrainian authorities. This is evidenced by the LPR’s proposal to transfer a group of detainees to Ukraine through your mediation. We are talking about women, the elderly and those suffering from serious illnesses. Ukraine is obliged to return its citizens home,” the academician noted. …He urged Medvedchuk “not to ignore” the numerous appeals of the relatives of the detained persons. “In the conditions of complete political impotence of the current government, do not disregard the numerous appeals of the relatives of the detained persons. You have always offered to exchange” everyone for everyone “and said that in the Russian Federation you agree with this. Now there is a chance to return people unilaterally. In the person of Leonid Kravchuk, they have already indicated that they will oppose the transfer of the detainees to you. Moreover, they propose to resolve the issue “at the interstate level,” thus recognizing CADLO as independent states.This is either non-professionalism or criminal activity, for which the authorities still have to answer. But now the main thing is the fate of people, “Peshko stressed.He recalled that the oppositionist more than three years ago had already managed to carry out a large-scale exchange of detainees by the New Year, despite the fact that the ex-president “in every possible way obstructed the exchange.”“On behalf of all the relatives of the detained persons, I ask you not to stop in your intentions. Let the political squabbles and envy of people who have no influence on such processes prevent Ukrainians from returning home,” Peshko urged Medvedchuk.
