“Russia supported the OSCE ‘roadmap’ on the resolution of the political crisis in Ukraine,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
“We believe that the new OSCE ambassador Heidi Tagliavini will do his best to implement the ‘roadmap’. We hope that he will exert maximum effort for working out agreements on terminating violence and launching a dialogue with the participation of all Ukrainian forces and regions,” the ministry said.
“Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov took part in different consultations in Kiev for the benefit of the OSCE efforts aimed at implementing the ‘roadmap’. Russia’s position was confirmed during the telephone conversation between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Swiss President Didier Burkhalter on June 9,” the ministry said.
