MOSCOW, April 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow is calling on the United Nations Security Council and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to urgently consider the situation in southeastern Ukraine,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.
“We are demanding that the ‘Maidan’ protesters who overthrew Ukraine’s legitimate president immediately stop a war against their own people and meet all their commitments under the February 21 agreement,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in its statement.
“The western sponsors of ‘maidan’ protesters, especially those who put their signatures under the aforesaid agreement and also the United States who is standing behind them, are obliged to bridle their fosterlings, who have gone out of control, and make them distance themselves from neo-Nazis and other extremists; stop using weapons against the Ukrainian people and immediately start a real national dialogue, in which all regions will take an equal part, in the interests of an early and fundamental constitutional reform,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“A possibility to avert a civil war is now in the hands of the West,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
