BASEL, December 4. /TASS/. Ukrainian drama could have been prevented back a year ago, but Brussels rejected the idea of trilateral talks by Russia, Ukraine and the European Union and supported a government coup, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting of the OSCE foreign ministers on Thursday.
“The Euroatlantic region is experiencing a fundamental crisis and a way out has to be searched for,” Lavrov said. “The way into the future can be mapped out only through joint efforts and on the basis of deriving the correct conclusions from the lessons of the past.”
