The President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky excluded the former Prime Minister (1990-1992), Witold Fokin from the delegation in the trilateral contact group (TCG) on settlement of the conflict in the East of Ukraine. Mr. Fokine was the acting first Deputy head of the delegation. The reason for the resignation, according to the President’s office, was disagreement with the policy of Kiev about the role of Russia in the conflict.”The President stated that Vitol’d Fokin retreated primarily from the fair valuation temporary occupation by Russia of the Crimea, of Sevastopol, of individual regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions of our country”,— stated in the statement. The office of Mr. Zelensky said that the purpose of the Ukrainian delegation — the return of the territories is exclusively in the Ukrainian conditions.Calls to exclude him from the list of negotiators started after an interview in which he was called upon to distribute a special status on the whole territory of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, as well as to accept Russia’s call for a General Amnesty. After the publication of Mr. Fokin said that the interview has been inconsistent editing.Read in the material “Kommersant” “the Office of the President of Ukraine was suspected of treason”.
