MOSCOW, March 18, 22:17 /ITAR-TASS/. It is important to curb the provocations of ultranationalist and radical forces in Ukraine against the country’s Russian-speaking population, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday as he spoke by telephone with the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry.
Lavrov made an especial emphasis on the essentiality of stopping such provocations in the southeastern regions and other parts of the country, a source at the Russian Foreign Ministry told reporters after the conversation.
“For this purpose, observers of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe or the Council of Europe can be dispatched there on the condition their mandate will envision their impartiality, and the places as well as modality of their deployment in different parts of Ukraine will spelt out clearly,” he said.
