MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Russia will never stop supporting its compatriots in Ukraine and will spare no effort to keep Ukraine a united state, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 television channel.
"I don’t have a feeling that after this Ukrainian drama we will give up our positions and stop supporting our compatriots," he said. "Everything we are doing now, everything our president is doing (and it was him to initiate the Minsk agreements - first in September that later grew into a comprehensive plan of February 12), everything we are doing is geared towards preserving Ukraine as a united state, given the Ukrainians themselves reach an agreement on how this country’s parts, so different in terms of culture, civilization and language, can co-exist peacefully and in security."
"Donbas will never celebrate the new holidays established by the Ukrainian authorities that glority Shukhevich, Bandera, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), and as far as I understand, Lviv will never wear St. George ribbons. So, these two different cultures, systems of values, styles of life can be reconciled only through dialogue," Lavrov underscored.
"And this is the core point in our position - to have Kiev, Luhansk and Donetsk establish dialogue," he noted. "This is what our president has been repeatedly saying, including during his contacts with President[of Ukraine Petro] Poroshenko. We hope the Ukrainians will finally see the fatality of a different approach."
