Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is convinced that gaining majority in the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's Parliament, will allow leaving behind the long-standing policy of compromise.
"The majority in the Verkhovna Rada allows us to stop this tradition of striking deals, the tradition of political under-the-table bargains,' selling positions, swapping offices. Therefore, we want to really get a lot of votes and a high popular support rating to curb this need to have to agree on anything with anyone," Zelensky said in an interview posted by the President's Office on Facebook.
"They say, it's the policy of compromise. I think there have already been enough compromises for us over these 30 years," Zelensky said.
