I would suggest considering several options. Depending on how the political pendulum and the environment fluctuate, especially in the elections in European countries, the behavior of Russian representatives, particularly Putin, will change. I fully associate perspectives, positive or negative, of such a mechanism on the results of these elections. If the supporters of pro-Kyiv policy and political forces close to the political leadership of Ukraine win, I have little faith in the fact that such an institution can take place. If the victory is for politicians such as Sarkozy, and they enter into an agreement with Moscow, I do not exclude that such an option could be," he said.
