Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday said Moscow believes that Sunday’s parliamentary elections in Ukraine were valid despite many violations.
“The way I see it, the elections did take place, although not in the whole territory of Ukraine,” he said. “I believe that we shall recognize the results of these elections, because it is very important for us to see Ukraine at last has authorities not involved in internal rifts or tug-of-war, pulling Ukraine to the West or to the East, but busy with the real problems that the country is facing."
