MOSCOW, March 08, /ITAR-TASS/. The current Ukrainian government is dependent, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Tajik counterpart Sirodzhiddin Aslov on Saturday.
“The so-called interim government… depends on radicals who seized power,” Lavrov said.
“The West knows well what they are but tries to conceal facts for reasons of political expediency,” he said.
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.
