MOSCOW, March 21. /TASS/. The conflict in Ukraine is a real tragedy, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Saturday.
"Yes, I am in distress. The events in Ukraine are tragic," Lavrov said in an interview with "Vesti on Saturday with Sergey Brilev", a TV programme on the Rossiya-1 channel.
"But I am also distressed with the facts that whims and total unwillingness to negotiate of a number of Kiev politicians simply blocks the implementation of agreements which everyone considered a good and implementable compromise," he added.
The minister said he did not even want to think of what would happen if the peace process was disrupted.
"The agreements should be fulfilled and we would be seeking it," he said.
