MOSCOW, February 22, (ITAR-TASS) - European counterparts visit Ukraine in a pursuit of their own petty goals, Vladimir Lukin, Russia’s ombudsman for human rights Vladimir Lukin said in an interview with Russia-1 TV channel on a prime Saturday news and analysis show.
On the night from Thursday to Friday, he took part as a mediator in the negotiations between President Viktor Yanukovich and leaders of Ukraine’s irreconcilable opposition, in which the foreign ministers of Germany, Poland and France took part.
“When the Europeans come there, their purpose is to return home afterwards and to show themselves off as really nice guys - in the national parliament, in the European parliament, and anywhere else,” Lukin said. “As for Ukraine’s affairs, they don’t care really much about that.”
“No wonder, though, because everyone has his own calculus and tries to derive benefits,” he said.
“What I really can’t understand is how it happens that my Western counterparts come to Kiev after saying back at home that President Yanukovich, the parliament, and government agencies are legitimate, and then they go to the Maidan (Kiev’s notorious Independence Square) where the overthrow-minded nationalists and terrorists assemble and there they shout ‘Long Live the Maidan’ and “Down with the Government’, the legitimacy of which they’ve just recognized.
