MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Ukraine’s susceptibility to external influence has led to bloodshed in the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Thursday.
“Objective processes of establishing a polycentric system of international relations are inconsistent,” Karasin told a Russian-Tajik inter-parliamentary forum. “We feel serious opposition from those who want to dominate in the modern world at all costs and return to a unipolar world order.”
“Ukraine has become an example of cynical attempts to drive a wedge between members of the Commonwealth (of Independent States),” the diplomat said. “Susceptibility to external influences and a distorted interpretation of its own national interests have already led in Ukraine to bloodshed, rampant neo-fascism and nationalism.”
“Russia does not recognize the principles of Maidan democracy, spontaneous and uncontrollable mob-rule on the streets, demolition of historic buildings and glorification of fascist criminals,” Karasin said.
