MOSCOW, March 08, 13:14 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Tajikistan have similar positions on extremists in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Tajik counterpart Sirodzhiddin Aslov on Saturday.
“We touched upon the situation in Ukraine,” Lavrov said. “We have a common position that extremists and nationalist radicals who try to aggravate the situation cannot be encouraged.”
Ukraine’s legitimate president, Viktor Yanukovich, was ousted in a violent uprising in February. The parliament then took over and appointed an interim head of state and government, which Russia does not recognize.
