MOSCOW, January 27 /TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament’s recognition of Russia as "aggressor state" is an irresponsible and thoughtless act, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and State Secretary Grigory Karasin told TASS on Tuesday.
"It is an absolutely irresponsible statement and a thoughtless act designed to impede advancement to the much needed compromise in Ukraine," the Russian diplomat stressed.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Ukrainian parliament adopted a statement on "Russian aggression in Ukraine." The document contains a call to the United Nations to exclude Russia from its ranks as well as to parliaments around the globe to render military and technological assistance to Ukraine.
The Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) decreed to recognize Russia as "aggressor state" and asked the world community to recognize the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic to be terrorist organizations.
