MOSCOW, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia denounces any violence in Ukraine and believes that the talk about its split is provocation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
"I would dislike to support the provocative talk regarding Ukraine's split; we're doing everything to prevent it and stabilize the situation," Lavrov said at the news conference at the Russian Foreign Ministry. "We're calling upon all the parties in Ukraine to solve the emerging problems through dialogue in the constitutional framework."
The Russian diplomat said the behavior of certain European politicians regarding the Ukrainian situation was "unbecoming."
"We'd like our European colleagues - some of them - not to behave so unceremoniously in connection with the Ukrainian crisis, when members of several European governments rushed to Maidan /Kiev's Independence Square/, took part in anti-government rallies in the countriy with which they have diplomat relations," the minister underlined.
"It's just not decent," Lavrov said adding that it fueled the situation.
