MOSCOW, May 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian people are being pushed into a fratricidal war, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
"The West tried to use Ukraine not as a uniting link on the European territory, but as a waterhsed," Lavrov noted. "Those who advocated such policy did not worry about it that much," he added.
“The crisis in the current international relations is connected with the fact that the truth - people’s right to determine their destiny - is being disputed. The Western partners continue the attempts to expand the geopolitical space, including with the use of force,” he said.
“We don’t impose our will on anyone. But we’re confident that in the present-day world it is necessary to recognize each other’s right to be different. Democracy is utterly impossible without it,” Lavrov said.
"The elections in Ukraine should put an end to violence and serve as a start of dialogue," the foreign minister stressed.
