Tusk: Putin never proposed to divide Ukraine


Former head of the Polish government Donald Tusk said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has never offered him to divide Ukraine.
He said on air of Radio TOK FM Friday.
“There was no such a proposal at any meeting with President Putin (to divide Ukraine – Ed.),” Tusk assured.
Former Polish Prime Minister said that Ukraine was not negotiable at any of his meetings with Putin, and during a visit to Moscow in February 2008 there was not a bilateral meeting Putin-Tusk.
“There was not a tete-a-tete meeting in Moscow. There was the so-called meeting in a narrow format and maybe some confuse these formulas, but in that case it was a meeting four to four or five to five,” Tusk said.
He also said that all of the meetings of such a rank are recorded in detail, and the first to get a record of the negotiations is the president of the country. In that case it was Lech Kaczynski.
“The whole history shows that memory can fail. Emotions are inadequate to what is happening in the world,” Tusk said.
Recall, former Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski in an interview with American magazine Politico, and then the Polish newspaper Wyborcza.pl said that in 2008, Putin during a tete-a-tete meeting, offered Tusk to divide Ukraine. Later, during the press conference, he retracted his words referring to bad memory.
Some opposition parties accused Sikorsky of concealing important information about this meeting for a long time and require his resignation from the post of Marshalok of the Polish Sejm.
