MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Russia hopes a healthy, pragmatic and non-aggressive approach will raise the upper hand in Ukraine after Sunday’s election to the national parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with LifeNews TV channel and Izvestia daily.
“One may hope - and we do hope - for a healthy, pragmatic and non-aggressive approach,” he said when a reporter asked him about the results of an early parliamentary election in Ukraine.
Lavrov also mentioned the elections that the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics located in the southeast of Ukraine plan holding November 2.
“Donbass has the agencies of power that were formed sporadically and instantaneously but have been recognized as leading bodies of the two self-proclaimed entities and are partners in the format of the Minsk accords (on ceasefire and peace settlement in the southeast - TASS) and are taking part in the proceedings of the Contact Group along with representatives of the Kiev government, Russia and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe,” Lavrov said.
“Their authorized representatives, Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky, have put their signatures under a whole range of documents of the Group and under the Minsk accords of September 5 and September 19,” he said.
