MOSCOW, March 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged the United States to use its influence on Kiev’s authorities to make them to stop mass lawlessness and arbitrariness against the Russian speaking population.
“In recent times ultranationalist and radical forces stepped up the activities in Ukraine’s south-east. Victims among civilians are reported. Radicals’ actions seriously destabilise the situation,” Lavrov said in a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday.
Kerry said the USA took necessary efforts that would yield positive results soon.
