MOSCOW, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow urges French Foreign Minister not to accuse Russia of all of Ukraine's problems, but to focus on honouring the liabilities Paris assumed as a guarantor of the February 21 accords - Russian Foreign Ministry.
Moscow responded “with a feeling of deep bewilderment” to the latest statement by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius regarding Ukraine, posted in his Twitter microblog, in which the chief French diplomat puts the blame for soaring tensions in Ukraine solely on Russia.
“Instead of indulging in groundless charges addressed to Russia, which is allegedly the root cause of all problems in Ukraine the French diplomacy Fabius is in charge of should better focus on honouring the liabilities France assumed as a guarantor of the aforesaid agreement of February 21,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said. “Had it done so from the outset, possibly there would have never been what we are witnesses to today, when the powers that be in Kiev are hatching plots, cynically and without pangs of remorse, to unleash a war against their own people.
