The press-secretary of Putin: we will not interfere with the events in Ukraine
The Kremlin observes with pain the developments in Kiev, but is not going to intervene with the internal affairs of Ukraine.
"Russia and Ukraine are two sister nations and Moscow observes, undoubtedly, with great attention and concern and sometimes with pain the events happening in Kiev. However, Moscow is convinced that the leadership of Ukraine knows well what to do. We are absolutely inevitable partners for each other. It is absolutely unacceptable for us to interfere with the internal affairs. We are convinced that Kiev knows what to do and will find the best solutions in order to normalize the situation and ensure that all will return to the legitimate peaceful course," the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said in his interview to Komsomolskaya Pravda.
At the same time, he noted that he was outraged by the behavior of representatives of a number of foreign countries, who afford to make recommendations to the authorities of Ukraine.
"Of course, we regret and are indignant with obvious outside interference with the internal processes that are happening in Kiev. We absolutely cannot understand, when sometimes the ambassadors of foreign states, who are working in Kiev, recommend what the government in Ukraine should do, from where it should withdraw the internal troops, from where it should withdraw the police and so on... Of course, it is a completely incomprehensible story for us. And, of course, we cannot approve it, and it will rather evoke our indignation," Peskov said.
Herewith, he stressed once again that Russia did not and will not interfere with the internal affairs of Ukraine.
"Any decisions, which are made in Kiev, are sovereign and they are made by the leadership of this country in the framework of democratic processes. Intervention, influencing this, using different instruments of political management, is unacceptable for us," Peskov concluded.
