MOSCOW, September 2. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament's intentions to cancel the country's non-bloc status and seek NATO membership indicate that Kiev's 'party of war' attempts to undermine peaceful conflict resolution efforts, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
"The 'party of peace' has been seeking a political and diplomatic resolution to the key problems Ukrainians are facing now. Meanwhile, the 'party of war' is taking steps that are definitely aimed at undermining these efforts," Lavrov said.
