MOSCOW, April 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Many in the West understand it perfectly well that Russia’s actions linked with Crimea’s and Sevastopol’s accession to Russia were logical, legal and well justified, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“It is a different matter that a number of states, which are pursuing their own political agenda, refuse to recognize the interests of Russia and the Crimean people,” he noted. “That is why there is disappointment, which tells on the work in multi-party formats.”
“Suffice it to look at the United Nations Security Council, where additional irritants have emerged, or at the General Assembly, or at the Russia-NATO cooperation, or at the Group of Eight,” the Russian diplomat said. “It is sad that political parochialism of some of our partners, their orientation towards confrontation tell negatively on the work in those areas where politicizing is inadmissible and counterproductive. Just look at, for instance, UNESCO, they are trying to inject the topic of Ukraine’s territorial integrity even there.
