BRUSSELS, March 05, /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Catherine Ashton, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov have discussed in Madrid the situation in Ukraine, a spokeswoman for the EU foreign policy chief said.
Spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said in Brussels on Tuesday that the discussion had been interesting. She did not elaborate.
Ukraine’s legitimate president, Viktor Yanukovich, was ousted in a violent uprising in February. The Ukrainian parliament appointed an interim head of state, set early presidential elections and approved a new government.
Russia’s official position was voiced by President Vladimir Putin at a news conference on Tuesday: Yanukovich remains the only legitimate Ukrainian president as no official impeachment procedures have been carried out.
