MUNICH, February 01, 17:27 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine would not like to be “a bargaining chip” in geopolitical games, acting Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara said at a meeting with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov within the Munich Security Conference.
“This humiliates us and this hurts the Ukrainian people,” Kozhara said.
“We want no one to prevent us from developing strategic partnership with Russia,” the Ukrainian minister said, adding that the European Union “also attracts us”.
Cooperation with Russia and the European Union “should be held outside behind-the-scene games that violate international law”, he said.
The situation around Ukraine is being heightened even in Munich. Certain mass media write: “A battle between Kozhara and (Valeri) Klitschko (UDAR - Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform) will be held”, Kozhara said.
The Ukrainian minister said he was planning to meet Klitschko to discuss the situation in Ukraine. “Now the situation is stable,” he added.
