MOSCOW, March 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow hopes that its European partners will be guided by the sense of reality and will accept the situation in Ukraine and Crimea, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.
“We will discuss the situation developing in and outside Ukraine as well as in Crimea. I hope that our European partners will accept this situation with the sense of reality,” Lavrov said at a meeting with his Cypriot colleague Ioannis Kasoulides.
The Republic of Crimea, where most residents are Russian, held a referendum on March 16, in which it decided to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, and subsequently signed a treaty with Moscow on Crimea's accession to the Russian Federation on March 18. The treaty was later ratified by the Russian parliament’s upper house and signed by President Vladimir Putin.
The developments surrounding Crimea followed a coup in Ukraine in February that occurred after months of anti-government protests, which often turned violent.
