MOSCOW, March 03, 7:05 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is ready to develop relations with Ukraine, but not with the group of people who seized power in breach of the Constitution and other laws of the State, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote on his page in Facebook.
"My attitude is as follows: Russia is prepared to develop comprehensive respectful relations with fraternal Ukraine. Mutually beneficial and effective ones. However, Ukraine to us is not just a group of people who, upon spilling blood at maidan, seized power in violation of the Constitution and other laws of their State. We perceive Ukraine it its aggregate as a country inhabited by diverse people. Ukrainians, Russians, Tatars, Jews, and people of other nationalities living in accord," the Russian Head of Government wrote.
"Yes, the prestige of President (Viktor) Yanukovich is almost negligible but this does not nullify the fact that under the Constitution of Ukraine he is (still) the legitimate Head of State. If he is guilty before Ukraine carry out a procedure of impeachment in accordance with Ukraine's Constitution (Article 111) and put him on trial. All the rest is arbitrariness. A seizure of power. And this means that such a procedure will be utterly unstable and will end with a new coup, and a new bloodshed," Medvedev maintains.
"Russia needs a strong and stable Ukraine. Predictable and economically reliable partner. And not a poor relative who who keeps begging with an outstretched hand. The latter-day Ukrainian rulers were told about all this on Sunday," the RF Prime Minister emphasized.
