PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, December 25. /TASS/. Russia is doing more than anyone else to help settle the situation in Ukraine, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday in a primetime talk show on Rossiya 1 channel.
“We’re doing more than anyone else from the point of view of humanitarian problems, solution of the gas problem and other things,” he said in the talk show hosted by the popular political writer and anchorman Vladimir Solovyov.
“We’re speaking with utmost frankness when someone tells us we unleashed the war,” Lavrov said. “But if we are aggressors, why do we receive refugees then? Why did we set up provisional accommodation facilities in the Rostov region (in southern Russia - TASS) and in other parts of the country - the facilities that the UN has described as exemplary ones in terms of organization?”
“I’m convinced that Russia will be able to press towards the start of a pan-Ukrainian dialogue that will help coordinate the rules by which all Ukrainians will live in a unified state, which will respect the language, culture, traditions, and history (of each region and ethnic group - TASS),” Lavrov said.
“Quite natural, economic decentralization is what is absolutely needed,” he said.
