Ukraine's Yatsenyuk evades saying if he supports OSCE roadmap of crisis settlement

Ukraine's parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has provided no direct answer to the question whether he supported the roadmap on crisis settlement offered by the Swiss presidency in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). In his words, the settlement plan should be "purely Ukrainian."

"A settlement plan should allocate the leading role to Ukraine, it should be a purely Ukrainian plan," he said on Tuesday at a joint news conference with President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso. "The Ukrainian government is promoting its own roadmap. It has some things in common with the OSCE roadmap but the settlement process should be Ukrainian."

"We are doing our best to stabilize the situation in the country. We have initiated a dialogue with eastern and western regions of the country," Yatsenyuk said, adding that members of the Ukrainian cabinet of ministers had visited eastern regions to discuss issues of the decentralization of power and protection of Russian-speakers and other national minorities, anti-corruption measures and social problems. "We are maintaining nationwide dialogue and are conducting nationwide roundtable consultations. Ukraine has its own roadmap to settle the situation.
