MOSCOW, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Current Kiev authorities should be informed that there is no alternative to taking into account the interests of regions when drafting a country’s Constitution, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.
“Therefore, I confirm once again that this is not in Russian interests to destabilize the current situation in Ukraine,” he noted. “It is in Russia’s interests for Ukraine to be united, and for all national, ethnic groups without exclusion and all regions without exclusion to feel in Ukraine as citizens with equal rights, but not subhumans who have to hear insults daily and suffer humiliation by neo-Nazis who are fighting to seize power as a participant in the coalition,” the foreign minister added.
“This meets Russian interests - an integral, united, friendly to us, brotherly Ukraine, citizens of which live calmly, live in their homeland, enjoying all rights and having an opportunity to communicate with their neighbors on the other side of the border without any problems,” Lavrov noted.
“It is possible to attain this only through a deep constitutional reform, in which all political forces and regions without exclusion should participate on an equal basis,” he said.
