MOSCOW, March 08, 13:04 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow is ready for equal dialogue with its partners on the situation in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday.
“We are ready for equal dialogue with foreign partners to help the Ukrainian parties to overcome the crisis,” Lavrov said after talks with his Tajik counterpart Sirodzhiddin Aslov.
Lavrov said the dialogue should be honest, without attempts to display Russia as a party to the conflict.
Ukraine has been in political turmoil since its legitimate president Viktor Yanukovich was ousted in a violent uprising in February.
