MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has really helped Ukraine, in contrast to vain promises and insolent demands of the West, speaker of RF State Duma (lower house of parliament) Sergei Naryshkin said on Thursday, opening an ‘Open Tribune’ meeting.
“We provide real help without any counter conditions and insolent demands to a sovereign state. It could not have been otherwise in relations of the truly brotherly peoples,” the house speaker stressed.
He said that at a recent meeting of the Russian-Ukrainian intergovernmental commission the sides had signed more than 10 bilateral agreements, including on economic co-operation. “It’s a whole roadmap for the further development of relations,” Naryshkin said.
The speaker also drew attention to a special statement on the situation in Ukraine that the State Duma has adopted. By this statement the house urged all the political forces of Ukrainian society to exert efforts for the crisis peaceful settlement. “By the way, if we compare the text of the Duma statement with the European Parliament’s resolution of December 12, 2013, it becomes clear who pressures whom and which of the two documents is a direct and open political blackmail,” Naryshkin concluded.
