MOSCOW, March 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday the events in Ukraine proved that Kiev’s authorities were unable to control the situation in the country.
“Russia realizes responsibility for compatriots’ lives in Ukraine and reserves the right to protect these people,” the ministry said.
“Tragic events happened in Donetsk on March 13, 2014. Armed right-wing radical groups attacked peaceful demonstrators, who wanted to express their attitude towards the destructive position of people who named themselves as the Ukrainian authorities. As a result of the clashes, one person died and many people were injured,” the ministry said.
“We said several times that those who came to power in Kiev, should disarm rioters and ensure security of the population and their legal right to assemblies,” the ministry said.
