Party of Regions demands stop to military operation in southeast Ukraine, that National Guard and Dnieper battalion disband
KYIV. May 15 (Interfax) - The Party of Regions faction in the Ukrainian parliament insists that the military operation should be suspended for the "roundtable" meetings of national unity and that the National Guard and the Dnieper battalion disband, parliamentarian Mykola Levchenko said.
"We demand the suspension of the anti-terrorist operation for the period of peaceful negotiation. We believe the parliament cannot continue working in this situation. It's hypocrisy. When blood is being shed, the parliament should work out measures to stop this war, not work and vote here," Levchenko told the parliament on Thursday.
Levchenko said that the Party of Regions faction also demands that the National Guard and the Dnieper battalion disband.
The Party of Regions believes that the roundtable meeting held in Kyiv on May 14 failed because active actions were conducted as part of the military operation in the early hours of Thursday. "The roundtable meeting held in Kyiv yesterday was aimed at resolving the problem in society and stopping the bloodshed. It failed. After the roundtable [Е], where a proposal was made to hold the second stage of the roundtable in Donetsk and Luhansk, the authorities delivered another strike. They attacked their own people again and people were killed again last night. It's unacceptable. There should be no bloodshed during peace negotiations," Levchenko said.
