"Now all the issues should be resolved in Kyiv" (Statement of the Mayor)

The City Hall sent the statement of Uzhgorod Mayor Victor Pogorelov about recent events in Ukraine and our city. Read it below.

"I wholeheartedly condemn the events taking place these days in our country, particularly in the capital of Ukraine - Kyiv on Nezalezhnist Square and Hrushevsky street. I am deeply indignant about the aggression that prevails between citizens and leads to tragedy.

I am very sorry about the people who died. I sympathize with their families.

However, I am grateful to my countrymen that Transcarpathia, Uzhgorod again is an example of tolerance and mutual respect between people and representatives of numerous national minorities, faiths. All protests are peaceful, law enforcement officers do not resort to any radical action. Local authorities provide a normal life in the city. Children learn, hospitals, transport, service work, wages are paid on time, developments on the project of the the city budget are ongoing.

I hope so it will continue.

Now all the issues should be resolved in Kyiv. I really want negotiations between top officials and leaders of the protesters to be successful, the bloodshed to stop and life to return to normal.

Recently, at the special session of the City Council, members adopted an appeal to the leaders of Ukraine with a request to identify and punish those responsible for the use of physical force against civilians. If city deputies initiate another session meeting - and this requires more than a third of votes - the issue will be resolved.

I am sure that through constructive dialogue we can find a way out of any situation," - the Mayor said in the statement.
