MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia voices concern about the Ukrainian opposition’s drive for aggravating the situation in the country, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
“One of the opposition leaders urged Ukrainian citizens to create any detachments, patrol streets and organize protest actions at administrations’ buildings at regions. These actions run counter to the opposition’s commitment to democracy and European values,” the ministry said.
“We express bewilderment with the fact that such provocations are taken just after contacts between the Ukrainian opposition and Western leaders in Munich,” the ministry said.
“We hope that the Ukrainian opposition will give up threats and ultimatums and steps up a dialogue in order to overcome the deep crisis by constitutional means,” it said.
