KIEV, May 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry demands from Russia explanations on alleged illegal crossings of the border between the two countries, the ministry’s press service said on Friday.
“Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry has sent an official note to the Russian side demanding from it explanations about numerous reports of arrogant violations on the Russian-Ukrainian border, when armed people attempted to infiltrate into Ukraine from Russia,” the statement said.
