The situation that has developed around the case of Oleg Sentsov, could be solved long ago, if the government is not a PR for her. Such opinion on air of “112 Ukraine” stated the political scientist Mikhail Pogrebinsky.
“If there was political will to solve these issues kindly, humanely, but not to show it, as does the Vice-speaker sometimes what she decides, someone interferes. In fact, it solves nothing. Know who decides. The President decides when Poroshenko has position, he meets with a famous person Viktor Medvedchuk, he carries on negotiations with “DNR”, “LNR”, and the issue is solved. I think this tragic situation with Sentsov had already been solved, if the parties to the Ukrainian first of all, not trying to do some PR, to create a heroic figure, poor people are starving there almost 90 days,” said Pogrebinsky.
The analyst protested that Sentsov pushed to death “appeals to stay.”
“I’d really like to (Sentsov – ed.) wrote a letter asking for pardon, and then would come home here and said that he had other way to be at home not. I don’t see anything” he said, calling the situation critical.
“I think Poroshenko with Vladimir Putin phoned would have to agree, but the fact that they have the “hullabaloo” about this, “we have to save the hero, and Russia is trying to kill him.” And now it actually looks like Putin should be forced to make a decision because pressure some party… I think we should bring this situation to a humanitarian, not a political one,” he concluded.
As is known, may 2014 Viktor Medvedchuk was negotiating with representatives of “LNR” and “DNR” for finding a peaceful settlement of the situation in the Donbass. The result of the mediating negotiating group was the agreement to start a dialogue between the TAG (it includes representatives of the OSCE, Ukraine and Russia) and “DNR”, “LNR”. 23 and 27 June 2014 in this format were held two rounds of consultations, which resulted in an agreement on the introduction of ceasefire.
Viktor Medvedchuk says that negotiations on the exchange in the format of “all for all” is conducted continuously. Recall that in December last year, hosted the largest exchange according to the formula “306 74” (at the time of preparation of the exchange, Viktor Medvedchuk met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Patriarch Kirill).
As you know, thanks to the participation of Viktor Medvedchuk managed to release more than 480 of Ukrainian citizens.
