THE UNITED NATIONS, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. The situation in Ukraine should be brought back on political track and in constitutional framework, Russian Permanent Representative in the United Nations Organisation Vitaly Churkin said at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Saturday. He shared United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson’s appeal to assess the situation in Ukraine keeping the head cool.
“As (U.N. Deputy Secretary-General) Jan Eliasson said correctly it is needed to keep the head cool. It is needed to bring the situation back on political track and in constitutional framework. It is needed to return to the February 21 agreement and formation of a government of national unity,” Churkin said.
It is also needed “to bring to justice” radical elements acting in the country and “advise to Ukrainian opposition activists or those who happened to be in Kiev now to separate from radicals and not to permit them to dominate in Ukraine,” he said. “Such actions may lead to very heavy developments,” the Russian permanent representative said. “This is what Russia seeks to avert,” the diplomat noted.
