Kuchma, independent Ukraine's second president, has been working as Ukraine's envoy to the Minsk talks for four years.

According to him, the peace talks are exhausting. "When I get home [after a new round of talks], it takes me two days to recover. Before every meeting there, I always take a tranquilizer pill. Talks are too exhausting," Kuchma shared his opinion, according to the TSN TV news service.

At the same time, Kuchma says there is no alternative to the Minsk talks now when countering Russian aggression in the east of Ukraine.
