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.
