MOSCOW, October 30. /TASS/. The legitimacy rate of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) will be determined by its further steps in the political sphere and in the economic field, Russia’s parliamentarian said on Thursday.
“October is coming to an end. The outdoor air temperature in Kiev is minus 1 degree Celsius and the gas problems have not been solved yet,” acting chairman of the Russian Federation Council (upper house) Foreign Affairs Committee Vladimir Dzhabarov said.
He expressed bewilderment with the fact that the Kiev authorities and Western partners “are sure Russia must pay for gas and supply it for free”.
Dzhabarov again pointed to Russia’s position: “We did our best. Now it’s Europe that should lend its shoulder (to Ukraine).”
At present, Ukraine is entering a very difficult period of its development. “Relations between the south-east and the central power in Kiev will depend on the development of the situation in Kiev,” Dzhabarov said.
Russia considers the elections in south-eastern Ukraine the expression of the people’s will. “Officially we are not sending observers to the elections. It is Russia’s principled position, particularly the Federation Council’s stance. The Ukrainian people itself should express its attitude towards these elections,” he said.
