KIEV, April 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Talks should start between Russian and Ukrainian foreign ministers in a contact group Ukraine offered to create several weeks ago, parliament-appointed Ukrainian premier Arseniy Yatsenyuk said.
Discussion [about the future of relations with Russia] had to involve the two sides, Yatsenyuk told an investor conference on Wednesday.
Earlier, the European Union has called on Moscow and Kiev to start immediate direct negotiations on the situation in Ukraine, agreed on deployment of international observers and create a contact group to settle problems related to Crimea.
At the same time, Russia has initiated a Ukraine support group, which will be acceptable for all Ukrainian political forces. “The current situation in Ukraine is conditioned on the deep crisis in the state. The crisis incited polarization of the society and the sharp aggravation of disagreements between different areas of the country,” the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
