MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Europe watches crimes committed in Ukraine "with eyes wide shut," Russian State Duma’s Committee on International Affairs Alexey Pushkov said on Friday.
"The majority of the European political class watches the developments in Ukraine and crimes committed there with eyes wide shut," Pushkov said.
"A number of EU countries count on pushing Kiev further toward a military scenario," the lawmaker stressed.
"At a PACE [Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe] session in Strasbourg, while discussing the situation in Ukraine, no one mentioned political murders in Ukraine. Not a word was said about the killing of Oles Buzina, of former [Verkhovna Rada] deputy Oleg Kalashnikov. Like it never happened," Pushkov said.
"Such an approach confirms that Russian delegation’s decision to leave PACE until the end of 2015 was right," the lawmaker noted. Pushkov also stressed that such position retains "the threat of disrupting the Minsk accords and continuing confrontation" in Ukraine.
