MFA of Ukraine expresses its sincere condolences to the families of those killed and injured as a result of provocation in Kharkiv on March 14. Those responsible for these crimes will be held accountable by all means.
Given the regular cynical expressions by the Russian side, this time by the Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov, the Foreign Ministry Ukraine once again urges Russia to stop blatant interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine.
The entire civilized world today sees the tragic consequences which result in such provocative actions.
We believe that the Russian diplomat Dolgov knows well that "guerrillas-neofascists" and "extremists" which he mentions are openly recruited and are connected to pro-Russian organizations in Ukraine such as "Rodina", "Youth Eurasion Union" and so called "Cossacks".
Russian Internet space with a domain «.RU» waves recruitment advertisement and instructions for militants.
State authorities of the Russian Federation, with the whole arsenal of tools on their own sovereign territory, undertake no effort to prevent the preparation and sending of extremists from Russia to Ukraine. Moreover, today these aliens extremists fully enjoy the protection of the Armed Forces, who have illegally invaded the Crimean Peninsula, an integral part of the territory of Ukraine.
It is known that paragraph «g» Article 3 of resolution 3314 ( XXIX) UN General Assembly of 14 December 1974, qualifies as an act of aggression sending by or on behalf of a State of armed bands, groups, irregulars or mercenaries, which carry out acts of armed force against another state.
Therefore, Russia assumes full responsibility for the escalation of tensions in some regions of Ukraine, deliberate destabilization of the socio-political environment, and exporting extremism.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially calls on Moscow to stop the incitement of enmity between the two traditionally friendly nations.
