MOSCOW, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The Kremlin is satisfied with the result of the Geneva meeting of representatives from Russia, the United States, the European Union and Ukraine on the settlement of the political crisis in the latter country but these results are yet to be thoroughly analyzed, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
“Many pinned big hopes and the very fact that this dialogue did take place is positive,” he told the Russia-1 television channel. “The results of this dialogue are yet to be thoroughly analyzed.”
According to Peskov, the Geneva talks yielded “a document, a Geneva understanding concerning what is to be done to cope with the most profound crisis in Ukraine, especially in its eastern regions.”
“Along with the adoption of this document, Washington came out with statements that it was still working on a programme of new sanctions against Russia. This move is unlikely to promote the atmosphere of dialogue, no one can ever come out with statements as the one recently voiced at the top level in Washington that the United States would closely watch Russia fulfilling its liabilities,” the Kremlin spokesman noted. “They should not treat Russia as a naughty schoolgirl who is being poked with a piece of paper on which she must tick off a report on her homework. It is impossible. This language is absolutely unacceptable.
