“I believe that our Western partners are trying, if you wish, to distort the real picture of events (in Ukraine) and distract attention from actions that are being taken to suppress those who disagree with an armed coup, committed in violation of Ukraine’s constitution and European values, by force,” Lavrov said. He added Russia had been urging all parties in conflict to sit down to talks.
