MOSCOW, February 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will do its best to ensure peace and calm in Ukraine, the Foreign Ministry reported on Wednesday.
“Russia demands the opposition leaders stop bloodshed in the country and resume dialogue with the legitimate authorities without threats and ultimatums,” the ministry said in a statement.
“Ukraine is Russia’s friendly state and strategic partner. We’ll do our best to ensure peace and calm in the country,” the statement says.
Civilians and law enforcers have died and received serious injuries in Kiev and other Ukrainian cities due to the criminal actions, which were taken by the opposition. Radical forces have seized the buildings of police, the prosecutor’s office and military units in the west of Ukraine. Rioters have jeered at policemen and servicemen. Dozens of them have received wounds.
Russia “is indignant with the lack of reactions from radical groups of the opposition that connive at ‘the brown revolution’ by using demagogic slogans to cover the commitment to democracy and European values”, the statement says.
“There is no clear reaction from European politicians and structures that refuse to recognize that the opposition bears full responsibility for the actions of radical forces in Ukraine,” the statement says.
