UNITED NATIONS, March 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev is ready to strengthen Crimea's powers in the Ukrainian parliament in constitutional ways through a nationwide dialogue, said the parliament-appointed Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk at the UN Security Council meeting on Thursday.
Speaking about Ukraine's Russian-speaking population, he said his government would protect all the minorities, as the country's constitution required.
Earlier, speaking at the Security Council meeting, Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin warned that all who had other views, including Verkhovna Rada deputies, faced threats and violence in Ukraine. He added that the new authorities had done nothing to organize a nationwide dialogue aimed at launching an actual constitutional reform.
