MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Russian lower house lawmakers discussed the situation in Ukraine with former Prime Minister of the country Mykola Azarov. The meeting was held behind closed doors.
“We had a unique opportunity to share opinions confidently on the situation which preceded Ukrainian conflict and its developments,” head of the lower house State Duma committee for CIS affairs, Eurasian integration and ties with compatriots Leonid Slutsky told reporters.
“We also debated what can be done, including the use of parliamentary diplomacy resource to overcome the civil crisis and not to permit those who were behind it to attain their goals to build a unipolar world,” the committee’s head said.
Mykola Azarov occupied the post of Ukrainian prime minister from 2010 to 2014. He is the former leader of the Party of Regions and a lawmaker of several parliaments. Current Kiev authorities accuse him of abuse of power.
