MOSCOW, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Lack of constructive ideas and considerate attitudes to other states while settling the crisis in Ukraine “will lead to its further degradation and may be fraught with a sudden aggravation of the situation in Europe,” Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Nikolai Bordyuzha told Itar-Tass on Friday, commenting on the situation in Ukraine.
“The CSTO follows the developments in Ukraine with great anxiety. There is obvious destabilization and social chaos there,” he said, noting that the rioters had not laid down their weapons yet and announced their intention “to establish order” in all Ukrainian regions. They threat with violence and defile the memorials to those who fought and died in World War II to free Ukraine from Nazism. We can see growing manifestations of nationalism, Russophobia and anti-Semitism, Bordyuzha noted.
“All this is taking place against a background of the forced takeover of power and violations of the Agreement on the Settlement in Ukraine of February 21, signed by the president and the opposition,” he said. “The foreign ministers of France, Germany and Poland, who endorsed the document, and the United States, which supported it, have in fact disavowed their own commitments and questioned the legitimacy of the duly elected president of Ukraine.”
Bordyuzha urged “all parties to overcome confrontation, to stop anti-constitutional activities, to begin a dialogue and to try to restore stability and ensure security”.
The CSTO is a Russia-led military alliance uniting six neighboring countries: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Russia.
