WASHINGTON, February 21, 5:44 /ITAR-TASS/. ass) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry “unequivocally condemned” the use of force against civilians by security forces in Ukraine, and urged that those forces be pulled back from the streets of Kiev immediately.
“The people of Ukraine and the international community will hold to account those who are responsible for what has occurred, and the United States has already begun implementing sanctions through travel bans on Ukrainians responsible for the violence,” he said in a statement on Thursday, February 20.
Kerry stressed that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich should undertake “serious negotiations” with opposition leaders immediately to establish a new interim government that will have broad support. “That is the only way to begin the difficult but essential constitutional and economic reforms that Ukraine needs,” he said.
He reaffirmed the commitment of the United States to the people of Ukraine and urged all members of the international community to help Ukraine return to stability. “We will work with our friends and allies to support Ukraine and Ukrainians in these difficult days,” Kerry said.
