“The Russian side continues to believe in the seriousness of our Western partners when they declare their desire to promote a peaceful resolution of the political crisis in Ukraine. However, the facts, alas, indicate the opposite, says the statement of the department. “We were counting on the fact that US Vice President Joseph Biden, who visited Kiev on 21 and 22 on April of this year, will affect the" power "aspirations of the current Kiev authorities. However, immediately after his departure from the capital of Ukraine, there was announced the resumption of the "antiterrorist operation" in the eastern regions of Ukraine. "
In addition, according to Russian diplomats, the Geneva accords prescribe the release of buildings on the Maidan.
“US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland in one of her last interviews even stated that protesters in Kiev are entitled to rallies on Maydanovskaya Square, since there is some kind of license for this, it’s not clear who issued the license, and protesters in south-eastern Ukraine supposedly they don’t have such a right, ”the statement reads.
