Russian FM: West Must Set aside Geopolitical Games, Keep in Mind Ukraine's Interests.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov called on his western partners to set aside geopolitical interests in relation to the situation in Ukraine and take into account the interests of the Ukrainian people.

"Those who try to interpret the situation as an act of aggression and threaten us with all sorts of sanctions and boycotts are the same our partners who persistently encouraged political forces close to them to deliver an ultimatum and refuse to negotiate, to ignore concerns of Southern and Eastern parts of Ukraine and as result it led to the polarization of Ukrainians," Lavrov said. "We urge the West to show a responsible approach and set aside geopolitical interests and put in the highest consideration the interests of the Ukrainian people," he added, speaking at the UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva. According to the Russian Foreign Minister, it's necessary to bring into effect the terms of the agreements signed on February 21, including a Constitution reform which will be debated by all the Ukrainian regions and then put to a universal referendum.
