MOSCOW, February 12 /TASS/. Leonid Slutsky, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Compatriots Residing Abroad, has criticized Ukrainian radicals for blocking Russian heavy trucks in the Transcarpathian region, Western Ukraine, and on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border.

"Their behavior is openly malicious and absolutely inadmissible. We are urging the incumbent government in Ukraine to take urgent measures to slip the radicals, who are capable of doing absolutely anything, on the wrist," Slutsky told journalists on Friday.

He said the Russian side had pledged to defend the right to safe transit of Russian heavy trucks. "For the time being, we will recommend that [Russian] drivers look for bypass routes," the Duma committee head said.

"All this does not comply not only with the norms of international law - let’s put lofty matters aside - but with elementary universal human notions and the principles of labor relations. The hysteria, which is being incited in Ukraine, has reached its apogee," Slutsky concluded.

Ukraine’s TV channel "112" said earlier that about 50 Ukrainian activists had blocked the entry to Ukraine (from the side of Belarus) to heavy trucks with Russian number plates as well as to other foreign trucks, which were carrying goods to Russia.
