“There's no doubt, and today’s events prove it, that when rioters use firearms, it is a state coup attempt or forcible seizure of power,” the Russian diplomat said.

“We demand the rioters’ leaders stop the bloodshed immediately and continue searching for peaceful solutions to the crisis without threats and ultimatums,” he said, adding “The situation should be settled within the constitutional framework.”
