MOSCOW, May 02. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry demanded decisively the West should “give up their destructive policy towards Ukraine and those who declared themselves as authorities in Kiev should stop a punitive operation and any violence against their own people, should release political prisoners and should ensure full freedom for activity of journalists.”
“This will allow starting a real process of de-escalation,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stated.
“It is needed to organize immediately a really full-fledged political dialogue with all regions involved to work out generally acceptable agreements about the future of the country and not to try to imitate reforms in a narrow circle of the self-proclaimed “coalition of winners,” the Russian diplomatic agency said.
Backing organizers of a state coup in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, in their policy for a forcible suppression of protests “the United States and the European Union take a huge responsibility, actually cutting ways for peaceful settlement of current crisis,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stated.
“With this in view, Washington’s strong refusal, in defiance of the April 17 Geneva statement, to support an initiative to organize a dialogue between representatives of Kiev authorities and south-eastern Ukrainian regions under the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) aegis does not look accidental at all,” the Russian diplomatic agency noted.
