The Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group is not going to recognize CADLO as a party to the negotiations. This was announced by member of the political subgroup of the TCG, people's deputy from Servant of the People and head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Legal Policy Andriy Kostin at a press conference in Kyiv today, - correspondent of OstroV reports.
"Any recognition of the so-called representatives of these territories (CADLO, - ed.) is impossible. This will not happen and this is not happening", - he stated.
The people's deputy also recalled that even the Russian Federation did not recognize the subjectivity of CADLO.
"It is the Russian Federation that is trying to lead to a direct dialogue (of Ukraine and CADLO, - ed.). But we always repeat that the Trilateral Contact Group is Ukraine, Russia and moderation by the OSCE. When representatives of the Russian Federation try to show themselves as mediators or moderators, this is a load of hooey", - the member of the TCG political subgroup said.
"Ukraine will never give the Russian Federation an opportunity to be some kind of moderator. This is a conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation", - Kostin emphasized.
