A quadripartite meeting was held in Geneva with the participation of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the head of European diplomacy Catherine Ashton, and the acting. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Andrei Deshchitsa and US Secretary of State John Kerry. At the talks, the diplomats discussed the crisis that had developed after the coup in Ukraine and ways out of it. According to Sergey Lavrov, Russia has no desire to send troops into the territory of Ukraine.






Speaking at a press conference in Geneva on the results of a four-sided meeting on the situation in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that all participants in the talks were in favor of starting a broad national dialogue on Ukraine.


“It is emphasized that this dialogue should involve all Ukrainian regions, all groups,” Lavrov said. “The appeal is the need to immediately start a broad national dialogue, which should be inclusive, transparent and accountable,” the minister said.


“Decisions made in Ukraine should be acceptable to all Ukrainians. This is a guarantee of ensuring the stability of the Ukrainian state while ensuring the language peculiarities of various regions of the country, ”the Russian Foreign Minister said. “We have no desire to send troops into the territory of Ukraine,” he added.


Sergei Lavrov said that, according to the agreements reached at the meeting in Geneva, all illegal armed groups should be disarmed, and the occupied administrative buildings should be returned to their owners.


“Amnesty should be granted to all protesters, except for those who have committed serious crimes,” the head of the Russian foreign affairs agency said.


The Russian minister called on partners to respect the neutrality of Ukraine. “The fact that Ukraine chose neutrality and secured it in its law should be respected by all, there should be no attempt to question it, try to dilute it,” Lavrov said at a press conference on Thursday.


Meeting in Geneva

In Geneva, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met with US Secretary of State John Kerry, European Union Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton and Acting Secretary of State. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Andrew Deshchitsa. At a meeting initiated by the American side, the diplomats discussed the situation in Ukraine that had developed after the coup d'état.


On the eve of the talks, the participants in the consultations noted the need to de-escalate the conflict, however, they could not work out a common position. The Russian side insisted on the presence of representatives of the south-eastern regions of Ukraine, and the main topic at the talks, according to Sergey Lavrov, was to become a constitutional reform in Ukraine, in which all regions of the country would take part.

    According to Sergey Lavrov, Russia has no desire to send troops into Ukraine.
    And rightly, in 2-3 months the hungry people will do everything themselves, if not earlier, of course.

      no, gradually the Russian government, carefully, will merge the southeast of Ukraine, lower the cost of gas (raising inside the country)
      as much as they "say", and the hungry people of Ukraine will rush to Russia to earn money, thereby taking away the last job from the Russians, which the Tajiks and Uzbeks have not yet taken. As a result, who will be hungry? - Right, the Russian PEOPLE.

            everyone laughs at the Americans, who do not know where Ukraine is located (you are one of them). There is nothing to worry about, because it is not one of the American states, Ukraine is not their country. It is terrible when a citizen does not know how huge his country is. Boasting your ignorance is not good! For you!!! There are nine time zones in Russia- EIGHT hours of difference!
            ACCORDING TO MY STATEMENT: I ​​am used to thinking and analyzing with MY head, expressing my opinion I never touch personal relations (this is low), people with a "head" understood me, there are not so many of them. The rest "warm" their ears, not understanding how serious everything is.
            To make it clear near! IF SELF-DEFENSE DISARMES and goes on about the international community, as called for by the Geneva Forum, EVERYTHING ... TOMORROW IN UKRAINE WILL BE A NATO BASE. And the talk that the Ukrainian army will not go against its people is complete nonsense, remember the nineties in Russia, who shot at the White House. Everything will depend on the officers on whose side they are.
            MOST IMPORTANT, THE DEFENSE DOES NOT HAVE TO GIVE UP !!!

        Just do not worry about the Russian people. Enough for him jobs more highly skilled. Who wants to always find both a place and a job. And whoever sits in a seat and waits for someone to owe him something, he will not find anything anywhere.
        But Ukrainians in Russia graze on earnings anyway. Moreover, mainly from Western Ukraine, because there is still industry in the East.

      If the captured buildings are freed, the oligarchs appointed to govern the southeast will return to their places. Before the election, they will be dragging on time pretending to have some kind of dialogue there, but after the election you won’t do anything. Very surprised by these results.

            - but, quite the opposite! Western "friends" hide behind slogans of utopian idealism about unlimited freedom, tolerance, rights, thus inciting riots in other countries to riot. So, their own "weapon" and the answer to them. "Friends" signed the paper. Now let them try to return the country to order, to the present, and not in certain areas and without using the army. Let the presidential candidates be provided with freedom in campaigning, the activists will be released (not the maydanuts, but the healthy ones). Something seems to me very clear that they cannot do it. The paper that was signed was prepared not for suppressing the protesters in Little Russia, but for demonstrating to the world that muzzle and well ... that captured government offices in Kiev!

        Well, no one has released anything yet. I think that VVP said what he had to say, as did Lavrov. Well, if someone from Novorosov does not understand whom to listen to, then the agents of the "bloody gebni" and "little green men" will explain to him.

        Surprise, mild reaction to the outcome of the negotiations. I would like to believe that it’s me, in my own wit, that I don’t understand something. Self-defense fighters in cities in southeast Ukraine are illegal armed groups. But the national guard, consisting of nationalists of all stripes, is not. And the provocateurs from law enforcement officers - they do not exist for the interim government at all - are spontaneous, popular, and elusive for law enforcement from BP.
        So, what optimism is there, one wariness. How can the Russian Federation influence de-escalation in the southeast of Ukraine? But the rest of the negotiators (conspirators), claiming that our special services and groups work there, will argue that we do not comply with the provisions declared in the statement.

Right sector now will scream about the surrender of the interests of the great Ukraine, mistrust of the authorities, he will naturally refuse to disarm and will go to overthrow the traitors. Time passes, the mess will only intensify, on May 9 the Nazis will show themselves in all their glory ..... In general, we are not in a hurry and wait. Everything is according to plan.

    An interesting policy for Bendera. They do not just bite, but want to bite off the hand that feeds them. Eternally subsidized areas have accumulated the audacity to dictate their terms to industrialized areas. It seems to me that they have gone a roof from the fact that they had a breakthrough in their voices. Who were they before? People of the second grade, with virtually no rights as part of Poland and Austria-Hungary. Where they were either rinsed or dashed. After World War II, there was no trust in them, as traitors. And now, unexpected equality. The psychology of the eternal slaves could not stand this, which gave rise to a megalomania from a complex of insignificance. But this is a clinic (Kashchenko). The mistake of the East is that they sat at home and gave the Maidan people to finish their work. It was easier to strangle freaks on the Maidan in the bud than to have now what we have. I understand that people from the east of Ukraine have no time to drive around the Maidan, they, unlike the western drones, work. BUT! After all, they saw what was happening and what it leads to. This is my personal and purely subjective opinion. The people of the East of Ukraine, we are with you! But decisive action can be taken only by you, step back and you will end, and we will help you with what we can. Glory of HOLY RUSSIA !!!

    There is a discord in Lavrov’s statements and in yesterday’s words of GDP. GDP said that Novorossia is not Ukraine (not a quote, but within the meaning), while Lavrov puts an end to the accession of SEI to Russia. Since if the Easterners disarm now and release the administrative buildings, then they will quickly be broken. And blood will not be needed, the leaders are transplanted and that’s it. An example of this is Kharkov. And if they don’t disarm, Russia will not be able to officially support them and, therefore, will not be able to accept them as part of Russia. Nevertheless, I don’t think that GDP was so substituted, he usually thinks that he speaks and his words are clearly not impromptu in anticipation of a favorable outcome of the negotiations, which did not happen. Therefore, as I understand it, this dissonance should be understood as follows. The south-east of Ukraine did not obey us, therefore we will not take it to Russia, but we will not give it to Ukraine either. Apparently, we are waiting for the non-fall New Russia as part of the CU. In principle, this is the best option. For all.

      And why did you get the idea that Russia wants to add someone else, the residents of SEU themselves do not want this yet. Putin spoke about this yesterday too. No discord. The call to disarm (to all parties to the conflict) sounds quite sensible. And what did you want from Lavrov - an appeal for barricades? Whether all parties will disarm is another question.

GDP wants or does not want - this is just not important, it is important that the people decide. The people of SEI do not want to yet, they wish to be a subject of the federation within Ukraine, and even half, to the rest

    Negotiations were going on between those who can decide something, and "pets" were periodically let out into the street for a walk. Since the approach of living creatures in our country and the Americans is fundamentally different, it is too early to draw conclusions. These were far from the last negotiations, and the more protests in the East, the more harshly Lavrov must behave. We have already shown bourgeois magazines reporting from Sloviansk, Donetsk, Kramatorsk - the rhetoric has changed dramatically, it is no longer terrorists who are conducting separatist actions, but at least "peaceful masked protestors" like those on the Maidan. Those. fighting for their constitutional rights to a better life. So let's see, still from the front.

    Lavrov is a diplomat. He agrees, and does not spill slogans. The people can demand from the Maydan movement to federalization, to call Russia for protection. If you manage to calm the Maydan’s, it’s good. But it seems they have different tasks. And America didn’t bring a match in order to extinguish the fire later. So the logic of events will lead to escalation. But this path is ALL FORCED to go through. That Stalin could hit ..em on the table. But we are diplomats today.

    There is no desire, there is one severe need ... After seeing the video where the head of the Main Internal Affairs Directorate (judging by the comments) of Donetsk is being cut, and in front of my wife, for example, I fully realized that troops should be sent in, I hope at least this material will encourage more Ukrainians to do so that the ground burns under the feet of the right sector. PS I don't give a link - go to Yandex and search for the request "The right sector cuts the throat of an employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine" because it is deleted from this site and from YouTube.
