ST. PETERSBURG, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine "is being torn apart by deep political crisis", State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said after a meeting of the regional Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) on Thursday.
Naryshkin was speaking to reporters after briefing fellow CSTO delegates on Russia's position over events in Ukraine. "We're deeply worried about what is happening," Naryshkin said.
Incumbent Kiev authorities' actions were causing indignation, including attempts to forcibly suppress rallies of Ukrainian citizens living in southeastern areas. "Using military force against civilians is simply unacceptable," he said.
"People who live in Ukraine's southeast want dialogue with the authorities. They wish to tell the authorities how they conceive their life in the state of Ukraine," Naryshkin stressed.
"Regrettably, Kiev authorities do not hear them, don't want to hear them, and keep amassing troops in these regions," Naryshkin added, noting that CSTO colleagues viewed Russia's position on the issue "with understanding".
