VIENTIANE, September 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has welcomed the balanced stance of Southeast Asian nations in assessing the events in Ukraine, Speaker of Russia's Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko said on a visit to Laos on Friday.

"Russia values the balanced position of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) over the events in Ukraine, where internal conflict has led to humanitarian catastrophe," she said, arriving with a delegation of Russian lawmakers for a two-day visit to ASEAN's Interparliamentary Assembly.

"We do not accept pressure tactics to attain political or other objectives," said Matvienko, adding that the only way to avoid further "degradation of conditions" was honoring international treaties and Ukraine's internal agreements with Russia.

"Russia is not a party to the conflict, it has put effort into the ceasefire and will continue doing so," she said.

Sustainable development, equal international dialogue, a global system of security reinforcement and respect for international law within the United Nations was common ground between Russian and ASEAN, she added.
