MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. Europe’s unified stance on Russia is "gradually falling apart at the seams", Russia’s Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Andrey Kelin said on Thursday.
"This attempt to unite all European countries, including the CIS member-states, around this position [on Russia], in my opinion, is gradually falling apart at the seams," the diplomat told the Kommersant FM radio station. "We have been debating for more than a year, with the discussion centering around the same talking point. It’s becoming increasingly more difficult to ensure that all European Union members share this view."
"I will not mention on air the countries that hold different views and that are gradually drifting aside… But here, on this common European platform, this is clearly visible," he added.
"This is clearly seen when at the [OSCE] Permanent Council comprising 57 members, only the Ukrainian and U.S. ambassadors are expressing this view [criticizing Russia], echoing each other like two brothers. The speeches of other representatives contain far more nuances and greater understanding of what is happening in Ukraine," Kelin said.
