MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault had a telephone conversation on Thursday to discuss the situation in the wake of an abortive Ukrainian sabotage attack in the Republic of Crimea, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
"The discussion centered on the emergency situation caused by the subversive act of the Ukrainian Armed Forces," the ministry said. "The Russian side indicated that what had happened in Crimea was to stimulate Russia's international partners towards wielding a more energetic impact on the Ukrainian leadership and warning Kiev against the dangerous steps that might have extremely deplorable aftermaths."
