"I cannot represent the interests of the new power in negotiations with Russia. Especially, mister Zelensky said that no negotiations will exist" — Medvedchuk said in an interview to the Vzglyad newspaper. He emphasized that he, unlike the new president, supports the special status for Donbass and amnesty for citizens of Ukraine who live there. Earlier the head of administration of the Ukrainian president Andrey Bogdan said that Kiev does not see the head of political council of "The Oppositional Platform — For Life" party Victor Medvedchuk as the representative of Ukraine at negotiations with Russia. Why Medvedchuk made such decision? The director of "Institute of global strategy", the Ukrainian political scientist Vadim Karasyov argues on it: Vadim Karasyov is the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of "Institute of global strategy" "I think, this decision is made by Medvedchuk, but Moscow was aware.

This decision is dictated by unwillingness to accompany Zelensky in very cynical game because Zelensky needs to begin now negotiation process which should not bring anywhere. The direction of team of Zelensky — it is all the same the USA, the European Union, it does not promise any normalization. What party is played here by Zelensky? He needs to receive votes of the southeast and many Kiev residents, having shown that he is able to return Ukraine to a certain point of the former relations with Russia, to normalize everything and at the same time to implement the program of the Maidan, to realize certain high personal expectations of inhabitants.
