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.”
