MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Russian trade unions have expressed support to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s position on the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis, according to a resolution adopted at a trade union rally in Moscow on Tuesday.
“We are mourning over those who were killed in the armed conflict in Ukraine. We offer our sympathies to hundreds of thousands of refugees who had to flee their homes and drop their jobs. We are confident that only the Ukrainian people has the right to determine the future of their country and they can do it only by peaceful means, without any interference from outside,” the document said.
“We voice support to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s position - only an equal dialogue involving all parties concerned may lead Ukraine to peace.”
According to the head of the Russian Federation of Independent Trade Unions, Mikhail Shmakov, about one million trade union activists took part in rallies and marches on October 7, the World Day for Decent Work, in more than 60 regional centres across Russia.
