Home / News / Kravchuk: There Can Be No More Talks in Minsk
Minsk can no longer be a platform for negotiations on a settlement in the Donbass due to recent events, Kravchuk said. The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group, Leonid Kravchuk, ruled out the further use of Minsk as a negotiating platform for Donbass. He said this on the air of the Ukraine 24 TV channel on Thursday, May 27. “We will no longer have flights to Belarus, we will not even be able to get there. Thus, given the current situation, the dictatorial behavior demonstrated by the self-proclaimed President of Belarus Lukashenko, it is clear that we cannot even consider the issue of the discussion point - the Minsk platform. We will definitely look for a new site, "he said. Kravchuk added that Ukraine will address all parties to the negotiations with the question of finding a new place, first of all - to the OSCE. Recall, on May 23, a Ryanair plane en route from Athens to Vilnius made an emergency landing in Minsk after reports of mining. The creator of the NEXTA Telegram channel, Roman Protasevich, who was on board, was detained. In response to this, a number of European countries, including Ukraine, decided to stop air traffic with Belarus.
