“We have once again to draw attention to the fact that the Kiev authorities are not fulfilling the accords agreed in the Geneva statement of April 17 and further developed in the roadmap of the Swiss OSCE Chair,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“Contrary to the obligation to refrain from any use of force actions, intimidations and provocations, Kiev has not only failed to halt but is stepping up its punitive operation against its own people and is subjecting cities in the east of the country to regular night fire, including from heavy armaments,” the statement said.
“They are not being disarmed and, on the contrary, are being legalized and used along with foreign mercenaries in the punitive operation in the south-east,” the statement said.
The Kiev authorities are also not conducting an open, objective and transparent investigation into the February riots on the Maidan and the May bloody events in Odessa and Mariupol, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
