KIEV, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said in an interview with the European media in Davos that Ukraine would not reject assistance of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in the settlement of the current crisis in the country provided there would be an offer, the cabinet's press service said.
"We have learned about a balanced and realistic attitude of Switzerland," Azarov said answering a question about the problems he was set to discuss with the OSCE current chairman-in-office, Swiss President Didier Burkhalter.
"Swiss statesmen have refrained from making statements that could be viewed as a one-way stance," he said. "Switzerland is a neutral country presiding in a truly international organisation as the OSCE. And assistance of its chairman-in-office in settling this conflict is of major importance."
Azarov also spoke about his intentions to inform the Swiss president about "a real situation in Ukraine.
Prime Minister has called on European politicians who have influence on the Ukrainian opposition to help normalize the situation in the country.
“European politician could have offered real help to normalize the situation in Ukraine,” he told journalists in Davos. “It would be enough for [European Commission President Jose Manuel] Barroso, [European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine] Ashton, [European Union Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Stefan] Fule or other politicians to tell the Ukrainian opposition that the seizure of state institutions, administrative buildings is unlawful, that it runs counter to democratic norms: if you go on like this, we would not cooperate with you.
