Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko may become Ukraine's envoy to Minsk talks on Donbas after Leonid Kuchma, who represented Kyiv at the negotiations, resigned.

Yushchenko is seen as a favorite in the fight for this post, Russia's Kommersant newspaper said with reference to sources close to the negotiation process.

"The most anti-Russian president of Ukraine may lead the Ukrainian delegation in Minsk, and this will b ecome a problem for Russia. For example, he does not speak Russian without an interpreter," the newspaper's source said.

Among Yushchenko's competitors is First Deputy Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko, who represents Ukraine in the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group for the Donbas settlement. Ruslan Demchenko, an adviser to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and former First Deputy Minister of Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is also named as a possible candidate.

Yet, the Russian newspaper says Kyiv is reportedly considering an option to abandon the Minsk format at all.

As UNIAN reported earlier, former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma on October 2 concluded his work as Ukraine's representative to the Trilateral Contact Group at the Minsk talks on Donbas.

The Minks talks involves representatives of Ukraine, Russia, the OSCE, and members of the self-proclaimed republics, "Donetsk Pe ople's Republic" and "Luhansk People's Republic."

Peace talks on Donbas are also held in the so-called Normandy format, involving representatives of Ukraine, Russia, France, and Germany.
