MOSCOW, May 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia notes “further degradation of domestic political situation in Ukraine,” Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
“New evidence was gathered that Kiev authorities lack a desire to launch a real process of deescalation and national reconciliation in Ukraine,” the Russian diplomatic agency noted. “This came down to the incident that lawmakers from the Ukrainian Communist party faction were taken out from the session hall in the Verkhovna Rada on May 6 in debates that concern interests of all Ukrainian people. The Party of Regions faction also left the session hall in solidarity,” the ministry said.
“Such actions of the so-called majority in the Verkhovna Rada show that basic foundations of democracy and parliamentarism were blatantly encroached upon,” the ministry noted.
“Probably fearing that Ukrainian citizens and citizens of other countries can learn the truth and can have alternative assessments about current events, Kiev authorities continue manhunt and provocations against journalists, including those from Western countries,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“We urge de facto Ukrainian leaders again to ponder ways to establish dialogue in society and a constitutional reform which are impossible without stopping combat actions in south-eastern Ukraine,” the Russian diplomatic agency said.
