MOSCOW, March 31, /ITAR-TASS/. The West’s assurances that it will prod Kiev to stop the lawlessness committed by ultra-radicals in Ukraine have not gone further than words, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law Konstantin Dolgov said.
“The burning of St. George ribbons in Odessa is just another outrageous act of high-handed neo-Nazis in Ukraine,” the diplomat said on Twitter on Monday, March 31. “By so doing they are scoffing at the memory of millions of people.”
“The passivity of law enforcement agencies during the rampage of radicals confirms that the Maidan government cannot or does not want to bring them to heel,” Dolgov said. “The assurances from the Americans and Europeans that they are ready to prod Kiev into stopping the lawlessness committed by ultra-radicals remain a declaration,” he said.
