The only one way of settlement of the situation in the east of Ukraine is political, announced the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz during his speech at the 11th Yalta European Strategy Annual Meeting. Schulz emphasized that Ukraine should not be blinded by the aggression and warmongering.

«First, there is no military solution to the crisis. All sides are well advised to restrain themselves and abstain from warmongering and inflammatory rhetoric. History teaches us that too often conjured-up spirits can easily run out of control. In the words of Martin Luther King, «the old law of an eye for an eye leaves everybody blind. Thus, all parties and the international community must do everything in their power to prevent the situation from spiraling completely out of control. There is only one solution and that is a political solution in full respect of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty,» he said.

In addition, the President of the European Parliament noted that Ukraine should continue the negotiations with Russia even if someone is against this as there is no way to solve the crisis without Russia.

At that, he stated that Russia should influence on the insurgents acting in the east of Ukraine and make them lay down arms.
