MOSCOW, April 25 /ITAR-TASS/. Further development of the crisis in Ukraine with Washington’s current position may further cool the relations between Russia and the United States, Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, said during a special program with Vladimir Solovyov on the Rossiya-1 TV channel.
“If the Ukrainian crisis continues, the cooling of Russia-US relations will increase, but we would not like that to happen,” Churkin said.
According to the diplomat, the United States realizes that it can’t command everything in the world, but it is unable to choose a different behavior.
“America is at a crossroads,” he said. “The United States… feels uncomfortable when it sees another force pole.”
Churkin said Russia and China are such a pole.
In the situation with Ukraine, “the United States wants to not only move Ukraine away from Russia, but also to hinge Ukraine on the European Union”, he said, “for the EU to become an amorphous structure and be unable to act as a US rival on the global arena.”
Ukraine has been embraced by turmoil since a coup occurred in the country two months ago and new people were brought to power amid riots. Russia does not recognize the self-proclaimed Ukrainian authorities.
