“We exchanged views on the situation in Ukraine which is living through a deep political crisis. We are united in that it is necessary to stop the activity of radicals, prevent their further rampages and ensure the speediest disarmament of illegal armed groups,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after a CSTO ministerial meeting in Moscow on Thursday, April 3.
“The measures the Kiev authorities are taking are correct but they need to be taken more decisively,” he added.
“We stressed the need to normalise the socio-political situation in Ukraine as soon as possible. An important role in achieving this goal is to be played by a comprehensive constitutional reform which would take into account the interests of all regions of Ukraine without exception,” the minister said.
He expressed hope that “objective and impartial work of the OSCE special monitoring mission in Ukraine will help ensure human rights and freedoms, especially the rights of all ethnic minorities”.
