KIEV, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine is ready for international involvement in the settlement of its domestic situation but rejects the idea of the country's federalization, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its official website on Tuesday.
“Ukraine is ready for international settlement and a dialogue in the formats that would be capable of ensuring practical results in a clear-set time perspective,” the document said. However, “issues that are within the sovereign right of the Ukrainian people to conduct its own domestic and foreign policy cannot be subject of talks.” Such issues, according to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, include the “idea of the so-called federalization of Ukraine.”
The document urged Russia to “stop interfering into Ukraine’s domestic affairs and to fulfil its public liabilities on the de-escalation of the situation.”
Nonetheless, by now, “the situation has stabilized,” the ministry stressed. “Law and order is safeguarded by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies, which will act toughly and in the framework of law against any anti-state and anti-national infringements," the statement said.
