UNITED NATIONS, February 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations Organization Vitaly Churkin has called on the European Union to adhere to its own thesis about non-interference into Ukraine’s domestic affairs and drop threats of imposing sanctions against that country.

Taking the floor after Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Friday, the Russian diplomat drew attention to the Baroness’ words that the peace settlement in Ukraine was the matter of residents of that country.

“We share the thesis that it is up to the Ukrainian people to find a way out of the crisis,” Churkin said. “And we would like to see this thesis being consistently realized in practice, with no sanction threats, no rivalry from foreign players seeking to promote European values concerning distribution of portfolios in the future Ukrainian government.”

“The European Union might have shared its experience in reacting to street disorders,” he added.
