The opposition agreed on five steps for the next months:
- To approve the proposed draft plan action of the united opposition, entitled “A fair state, an honest government, decent life,” as the basis for holding a national public debate.
- Arrange a series of conferences, roundtable meetings, and public hearings with civil society representatives, experts, and civil society organisations from May to July.
- To hold oppositional forums across Ukraine in order to discuss and complete the draft action plan and submit an improved version to the next national forum of the united opposition.
- To unite and organise all the political forces of the united opposition in order to start a determined push against ‘current criminal occupational government’.
- To formulate and to announce the final draft version during the next national Ukrainian forum of the Ukraine opposition.
