MOSCOW, April 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia reaffirms its offer of international assistance to the start of a genuine national dialogue of all the political and regional forces in Ukraine and states its preparedness to taking part in the appropriate efforts together with its foreign partners, Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement Monday.
“We are prepared to take part in appropriate efforts together with our foreign partners including foreign ministers of the countries that authenticated the February 21 agreement on the settling the political crisis in Ukraine,” the statement said.
The ministry warned, however, that the future has new upheavals in store for Ukraine if the authorities in Kiev continue treating the destiny of the people without a speck of responsibility.
“If the political forces calling themselves state power continue trading the destiny of the country and the people irresponsibly, Ukraine will obviously face ever more new impasses and crises then,” the statement says. “It is high time for them to stop making nods towards Russia and apportioning all the blames for Ukraine’s misfortunes to it.”
“The people of Ukraine certainly want to hear unambiguous answers to all the questions from those at the helm of power in Kiev,” the Foreign Ministry said.
“It is high time the Ukrainian authorities heeded those demands,” the document said.
