MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. Ukraine’s tragedy is the result of its Western handlers condoning the criminal regime that had shaped in Kiev, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said addressing the Conference on Disarmament in a video format.
"Ukraine’s tragedy is the result of Western handlers condoning the criminal regime that had shaped there following the bloody unconstitutional coup in February 2014, conducted in spite of Germany’s, Poland’s and France’s guarantees under the agreement on settling the internal Ukrainian crisis," the Russian top diplomat said.
Already then, he noted, the attitude of the coup organizers to European values became clear.
