BEIJING, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has dismissed Kiev’s accusations Russia is out to disrupt the forthcoming Geneva meeting.
“This is a flagrant lie,” Lavrov said. “We are gathering precisely for the purpose of discussing Ukraine’s internal crisis.”
“We have agreed on a draft agenda — de-escalation, the disarmament of illegal armed groups, a constitutional reform and elections. This is precisely what should be discussed,” Lavrov said.
He added that Moscow was prepared for the Geneva meeting by and large, but if force were used in the south-east of the country, the chances of holding it would be disrupted.
