The Russian side once again insists on an immediate deescalation of the situation in the southeast of Ukraine, the withdrawal of divisions of the Ukrainian Army and the start of a real inter-Ukrainian dialogue including all the regions and political entities of the country, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on its website.
Moscow is surprised by Kievs interpretation of the four-sided Geneva agreement adopted by Russia, Ukraine, the US and the EU on April 17, it added.
Despite the call for disarmament of all the illegal armed groups specified by the agreement, Kiev, Washington and a number of European leaders keep harping on the necessity to hand over weapons [referring] only to the Ukrainian citizens defending their rights in southeastern Ukraine. With that, the Western powers are turning a blind eye to the ongoing provocative actions of the gunmen of the far-right groups, including that of the so-called Right Sector.
Such actions, which have been taking place in both the capital, Kiev, and in southeastern Ukrainian cities, have already led to death of people overnight into April 20, the ministry said.
Russia continues to believe that the Western partners are earnest in their stated commitment for the peaceful resolving of the Ukrainian crisis, the statement said. However, the facts regretfully speak to the opposite, it added. Kiev has not moved to enter a dialogue with the regions of Ukraine protesting against its rule, while the US officials have apparently chosen not to discourage the coup-imposed authorities in their strongarm ambitions.

It's the only thing that makes any sense.
I quit looking for the “sarcasm” tag on these articles. We’re reliving the 1930s.
Mexico demands the US remove all troops and customs officials from west of the Mississippi to deescalate the immigration issue. < /sarcasm, but similar>
Probably build theme parks in in the Donbass.
What's not to like. /
“Mexico demands the US remove all troops and customs officials from west of the Mississippi to deescalate the immigration issue. < /sarcasm, but similar>”
Haven’t we already pretty much done that?
“Ubama is a “flexible” foreign agent working on behalf of Putin.
It’s the only thing that makes any sense.”
I’ve always thought there was more going on here than just a US-destabilized Ukraine, but the bigger picture didn’t really hit me until the Bulgarian pipeline announcement yesterday.
WHO are the biggest beneficiaries of Obama’s actions in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, the US attacking Syria, and the US destabilizing Ukraine? (besides TOTAL-FINA, which seems to be ending up with ALL of the post-revolt Oil/Gas contracts)
But Russia will continue to send in more troops in unmarked uniforms. Right.
Thank the Lord that the Ukrainians can count on the Russians for “stability.”
Crimea demands Russia go home.
Ukraine is so lucky to have such a concerned and benevolent neighbor as President for Life Putin’s Russia.
I thought Biden going to Kiev was a provocation that can only serve to make reconciliation less possible.
Boy, you really have a point there.
In fact, this is just like in the Sudetenland, 1938 - why couldn’t those damn Czechoslovakians just quietly accept the German troops that were occupying the border region of their country? Why did they have to resist?
I think you’re onto something here grania.
I’m saying they should VOTE !! As soon as possible.
