MOSCOW, February 24. /TASS/. The current security crisis in Europe results from attempts to create a unipolar world and is just formally related to the conflict in Ukraine, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov said on Tuesday.
"The current crisis ... refers to a relapse of attempts to turning the world back to the unipolar system," Meshkov told a foreign affairs committee of Russia’s upper house of parliament.
The diplomat said in these conditions establishment of a system of equal security in line with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe is becoming one of the organization's priorities.
Once the crisis ends, an important task will be to "create a single space from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean," he said.
Since April, the conflict in eastern Ukraine has killed nearly 5,800 people as of February 19, while another 14,595 people have been wounded, according to the United Nations.
