WASHINGTON, May 16. /ITAR-TASS/. US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland has never met with members of the Right Sector ultra-nationalist group, and the US Administration does not provide any support for the group, Deputy Spokesperson for the US State Department Marie Harf told ITAR-TASS in an e-mail.
Earlier, the Russian media reported that representatives of the Right Sector came to Washington last month to negotiate financial help for the organization. On Wednesday, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov touched upon the subject in an interview to Bloomberg TV.
“The other thing to which I wanted to get response from Washington was these reports about the secret visit of the Right Sector coordinator (Andriy) Artyomenko to Washington for alleged meetings with Victoria Nuland. And we want answers to these questions because it's too serious to manipulate events in Europe across the Atlantic. It's not a remote-control game. It's very serious for us,” Lavrov said.
