UNITED NATIONS, March 29, /ITAR-TASS/. Amid the lack of a political leader capable of uniting the nation the May 25 election in Ukraine would “almost certainly” cause the country’s further split, Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told Russian journalists on Friday.

“At present there are no prerequisites for the election to defuse the existing tensions. The more so, since, as you know, in Ukraine there is no political leader who would be capable of uniting the nation. Holding elections in a situation like this would be the surest way of splitting the country, which would be a rather sad development,” Churkin said after a meeting of the UN Security Council behind closed doors.
