MOSCOW, May 21. /ITAR-TASS/.The Kiev authorities should stop use of force actions and seek ways for a real national consent, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

“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.

Kiev has also forgotten its obligation to immediately disarm illegal armed formations, especially militants of the radical Right Sector movement and other ultra-radicals, as well as various regional militant groups like the Dnepr unit and the National Guard whose legal basis is doubtful, the Russian Foreign Ministry 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.
