Ukraine: Conflict must be solved through talks - Party of Regions leader

Aleksandr Yefremov, the Party of Regions faction leader in the Ukrainian Parliament (Verkhovna Rada) spoke to the media in Kiev on Friday. Speaking about the current political situation in Ukraine, Yefremov said that all matters must be solved by talks.

“The position of our country, just as with the position of the EU, is obvious: there must be absolutely no provocations and those parties that undertake such actions will be responsible for inciting the situation. All matters should be solved through talks and we must find a solution to this situation," Yefremov said.

Yefremov condemned the use of force, but said the police has acted adequately to the current situation.

The Ukrainian Parliament failed to start working for the third day in a row on Friday, with opposition members preventing the speaker from reaching his chair.
