PARIS, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov considers it necessary to enable each region of Ukraine to elect its own leadership itself. He spoke about that on Monday at the close of his talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry.
"Ukrainian statehood is yet to be sealed. I do not think that this will be possible to do on a steady basis if the fact of the Russian language as, undoubtedly, the second main language in Ukraine, is ignored," he emphasized.
"I do not think that in this way it will be possible to avoid accords, which in this or that way would signify a federalization of Ukraine," the Minister pointed out. "We do not impose any diagrams; the Ukrainians must reach agreement themselves as to how the rights are respected, those of both western, eastern, and southern regions".
"There must exist some diagram which would enable each region to elect its own leadership," the RF Foreign Minister said. "I think that there is no way round it".
