MOSCOW, March 04, (ITAR-TASS). Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Recep Erdogan had a telephone conversation Tuesday night, in the course of which they discussed “the acute crisis in Ukraine, including the latest developments in (Autonomous Republic of) Crimea,” the Kremlin press service said.
“Confidence was expressed on both sides that in spite of aggressive actions taken by radical and extremist forces from the Maidan (Kiev’s notorious Independence Square - Itar-Tass), interethnic and religious peace will eventually be guaranteed in Crimea,” the report said.
Putin and Erdogan agreed to support contacts at different levels for assuring peace and tranquility on the Crimean Peninsula.
The telephone conversation was held at the initiative of the Turkish side.
