Answering a question of how he views the possibility of talks with fighters of the so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" ("DPR") and "Luhansk People's Republic" ("LPR"), Khomchak said: "I am against any talks, I am a military man."
"I am Chief of the General Staff – my functions are completely different, I am not a negotiator," he added.
"Let the negotiators answer – this is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, others, i.e. those structures that should conduct talks. I can manage, prepare the Ukrainian Armed Forces for all possible threats, for an adequate response, and with minimal losses," he resumed.
