UNITED NATIONS, February 27, 1:31 /ITAR-TASS/. Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General, Robert Serry continued consultations in Kiev Wednesday but he did not contact President Viktor Yanukovich, whom the post-coup Ukrainian authorities placed on an international wanted list, Martin Nesirky, the UN spokesperson said Wednesday.
When asked about whether or not Serry maintained contacts with Yanukovich, Nesirky said he did not think so and he would tell reporters in case something changed.
He said Serry continued holding meetings and discussing events in Ukraine, repeating an appeal by the Secretary General for an all-round political process that would take account of aspirations of all Ukrainian citizens along with the upkeep of unity and territorial integrity of the country.
Along with this, Nesirky refrained from comments on the latest developments in Ukraine. He also declined to answer how the UN Secretariat he could assess the start of a search for the missing Yanukovich in Ukraine and abroad.
