MOSCOW, October 30. /TASS/. Moscow urges Ukrainian politicians to give up confrontation challenges that even deeper split the society, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
“The newly elected deputies have not started working and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has threatened to dissolve the parliament,” the ministry said.
“Now it is very important that the new power, which emerged in Ukraine, will finally deal not only with internal struggle but also with real challenges, take a responsible approach towards ensuring unity in the country by peaceful means, observe the rights of all citizens irrespective the language, political views and place of residence, and solve the pressing social and economic problems,” the ministry said.
“The task is extremely complicated. But there is a possibility of solving the problem. It is important not to lose it,” it said.
The hopes for political stabilisation in Ukraine after the elections failed. But there are chances for ensuring the country’s unity and solving social and economic problems, the ministry said.
“Russia sincerely hopes that after the elections the situation in Ukraine is starting to calm down. We hope that on the basis of the election resultsthe Ukrainian authorities will be ready to announce the policy towards consolidating the society and creating a government of national unity,” it said.
“Very recently much has been talked about it on Maidan. The ruling coalition obliged to fulfil its obligations while it signed the agreement on the settlement of the Ukraine crisis on February 21, 2014. However all happened the other way,” the ministry said.
“What commitment to democratic standards and values one can talk about if punitive battalions’ field commanders, who got into the Verkhovna Rada, are ready to bring their methods for struggling with those who disagree with them and speak about it without disguise,” it said.
“Humiliations are used towards the opposition. It is threatened violence and physical attack. It is recommended to keep silent and ‘not to come to parliament at all’ as leader of the Right Sector Dmitry Yarosh advises,” the ministry said.
“That’s democracy in the Kiev style,” it added.
