Ukraine should fulfil international obligations for ensuring security of diplomatic missions, Makei said at a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Monday.
“It is clear that such provocations should be denounced,” he said.
Makei named the actions and statements by Ukrainian parliament-appointed Foreign Minister Andrii Deshchytsia to the Russian leaders as humiliating.
“As foreign ministers we should bring people closer and not to separate them. Such humiliating statements towards the leadership of other state are absolutely unacceptable,” he said.
“The Belarusian president has been insulted by journalists and irresponsible politicians. But it’s another matter that such statements are made by the top diplomat of the country,” Makei said.
“We believe that this initiative should not lead to new dividing lines in Europe,” Vladimir Makei said.
The Eastern Partnership should not make Russia be isolated from this initiative, he said.
Belarus’ top diplomat has also said there are no problems in relations with Russia.
“I’d like to congratulate you on Russia Day and wish grandeur to Russia and prosperity to the Russian people,” he said.
“We could discuss bilateral cooperation. There are only small current problems and we can solve them in a constructive way,” Makei said.
