Medvedev Calls for 'Stability' in Ukraine
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has called for “stability and order” in Ukraine, as the country remains gripped by mass protests.
"We are watching what's happening in your country. It's an internal affair of Ukraine, though it's really important to have stability and order there," Medvedev said, adding that Ukraine was an important strategic partner to Russia.
Medvedev and his deputy, Igor Shuvalov, met with Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Boiko on Wednesday.
Massive rallies have taken place in Ukraine over the past two weeks, with demonstrators opposing a government decision not to sign a deal on closer EU ties.
Protesters are demanding the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych's government and new elections. President Yanukovych says Russian pressure was behind his decision not to sign the deal.
"President Yanukovych says Russian pressure was behind his decision not to sign the deal"-----Dearest Novinite,
the same "info" has been extended earlier by BBC and other media sources ;-). The only question: when and where Yanukovych told it? Thank You in advance.
And about "rallies in Ukraine...with demonstrators opposing a government decision not to sign a deal on closer EU ties"--- right, in Western Ukraine....while in South-Eastern Ukraine and Crimea (Donetsk, Lugansk, Dnepropetrovsk,
Kharkov, Simferopol, Sevastopol...) the demonstrators SUPPORTED the mentioned by You "a government decision".....Facts, not propaganda, must prevail, right, dear Novinite?
