TUNIS: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday the United States and European Union do not support a consensus government and reforms in Ukraine that would include all sides.
“We must have a dialogue and not exclude anyone,” he said during a visit to Tunisia, speaking through a translator. “Our position is clear on this and won’t change.”
Russia hopes its Western partners will not impose sanctions against Moscow over its actions in Ukraine, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
“We hope our partners will understand our position,” he told reporters during a visit to Tunisia, adding that Russia’s moves in Ukraine’s Crimea region had been right. “Nobody has a right to be angry with Russia. The European Union and the United States did not fulfill their obligations in Ukraine,” he said, speaking through a translator.
Lavrov also said Ukraine needed a comprehensive dialogue not excluding anyone.
