Ukraine always ready for talks if they don’t touch upon "red lines" - Stefanchuk

Ukrinform
Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Ruslan Stefanchuk, says Ukraine will never cross the three red lines in any negotiations.

The statement came during Stefanchuk’s meeting with deputies of the House of Representatives of the General States of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in The Hague, Ukrinform's own correspondent reports.

"There are three red lines through which Ukraine will never step over in any negotiations – the issue of Ukrainian independence, the issue of Ukrainian sovereignty, and the issue of Ukrainian territorial integrity. These three issues must be the subject of any negotiations. In addition, I would like to emphasize that with each such Mariupol, Bucha, or Irpin, the corridor for negotiations is becoming narrower," the Parliament Speaker said.
