NEW YORK, April 13, 9:46 /ITAR-TASS/. Spokesperson for the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has issued a statement voicing deep concern over the continuing deterioration of tensions in the eastern regions of Ukrainian where thousands of protesters demanding federalization of the country have been seizing buildings of law enforcement agencies.
“The Secretary-General is deeply concerned about the deteriorating situation in Eastern Ukraine and the growing potential for violent clashes,” the statement says.
“The Secretary-General stresses that further disturbances will not serve the interests of any side. He therefore appeals to all sides to work towards calming the situation, adhere to the rule of law and exercise maximum restraint.”
The statement says that Ban Ki-moon calls again for urgent and constructive dialogue to deescalate the situation and address all differences.
“The United Nations stands ready to continue to support a peaceful resolution to the current crisis facing Ukraine,” the document says.
