UNITED NATIONS, September 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Saturday said good will and denial of support to the “party of war” in Kiev were the key to resolving the crisis in Ukraine.
“We are convinced that in the presence of good will and denial of support to the ‘party of war’ in Kiev which is trying to push the Ukrainian people into the abyss of national catastrophe the way out of crisis is within our reach,” he said at the 69th session of the U.N. General Assembly in New York.
“The way to overcoming the crisis has been opened with the achievement of the ceasefire agreement in the South-Eastern Ukraine on the basis of initiatives by Presidents Pyotr Poroshenko and Vladimir Putin. With the participation of the representatives of Kiev, Donetsk, Lugansk, OSCE and Russia, practical measures are being agreed upon successive implementation of this understanding, including the separation of the parties to the conflict, pull back of heavy weapons of the Ukrainian army and militia forces, setting up monitoring trough the OSCE and preparation for elections in the South-East,” he said.
Lavrov reiterated that Russia was ready to continue to actively promote the political settlement.
“However, it should be crystal clear that we are doing this for the sake of peace, tranquillity and wellbeing of the Ukrainian people rather than for catering to someone's ambitions,” he said.
“The attempts to put on pressure on Russia and to compel it to abandon its values, truth and justice have no prospects whatsoever,” Lavrov stressed.
