Yanukovych and the “Negotiations” – A View from Mustafa Nayyem (February 19, 2014)

Comment by journalist Mustafa Nayyem on recent negotiations completed.  Translation by William Risch:

“Negotiations between the regime and the opposition have been completed.  There will be no storming (of the Maidan) today.  Viktor Yanukovich, Vladimir Rybak, Andrei Kliuev, Andrei Portnov, Elena Lukash, and Aleksander Efremov represented the regime.  Vitalii Klichko, Arsenii Iatseniuk, and Oleh Tiagnibok represented the opposition.  Viktor Yanukovich categorically refused to talk about his resignation or EU or US participation in negotiations.  The opposition for its part refused Viktor Yanukovich’s proposal to have Russia involved in negotiations.  Negotiations will continue at 9 a.m.  This will be the seventh meeting of both sides.”
