MOSCOW, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon are meeting in Moscow, a source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said Thursday.
The source said the meeting started in the Foreign Ministry’s reception house.
The UN earlier said Ban Ki-Moon planned to discuss the situation around Ukraine, where violent anti-government protests resulted in a coup in February.
The Republic of Crimea, where most residents are Russians, held a referendum on March 16. Some 97% voted for Crimea to secede from Ukraine and become part of Russia. On Tuesday, Russia and Crimea signed in Moscow a treaty on Crimea’s accession to the Russian Federation as a constituent member.
