Bulgaria: Russian Envoy to Bulgaria Backs Peaceful Resolution of Ukraine Crisis Russian Ambassador to Bulgaria Yuri Isakov, photo by BGNES

Russian Ambassador to Bulgaria Yuri Isakov has assured that Russia wants the conflict in Ukraine to be resolved through peaceful political moves.

"Russia has always taken and will continue to take a clear and consistent stance on the settlement of international conflicts on the basis of international law and the UN Security Council resolutions," Isakov declared Sunday, as cited by the Focus news agency.

"Russia in principle opposes the intervention in Ukraine's foreign affairs. We expect that all partners will stick to a similar line of reasoning," the Russian Ambassador to Bulgaria stated.

He claimed that it was dangerous and counterproductive to force Ukraine to choose between "being with us or against us."

Isakov noted that Russia wanted to see the program of Ukraine's newly elected government, including its policy on stabilizing the economy.

He stressed that it was very important to secure normal conditions, a cessation of violence and a reinstatement of law and order and national peace.

On Saturday, Russia's upper house of Parliament unanimously approved the request of President Vladimir Putin to use the country's military in Ukraine. The move stirred a strong reaction by the international community and a number of world leaders, including US President Barack Obama, called on Moscow to respect Ukraine's sovereignty.

To nellie2014 :
(1) Yanukovich is bastard, true, as well as those ultras who committed the Coup d"Etat, btw. Still he remains the lawful President, whether You or me like it or not;
(2)First and foremost Ukrainians (in South-East and Crimea) think that Russia save them from the slaghter;
(3) The absolute majority of Ukrainians and Russians have no smallest desire to fight against each other.
(4) Ane if You have so irresistible desire to "go to war with Russia", do it, but stop Your stupid propaganda, stop instigating Ukrainians "to take the fight to Putin". They DON'T WANT it.

Agent Piccadilloes is a moron and a nutter to boot. What universe is he living in?

nellie2014 - 3 Mar 2014 // 22:55:46

What did Ukraine thought was going to happen when they impeached the Putin puppet? Did Ukrainians think that Russia was just going to let them go? Seriously, how stupid are they? Unless they were fully prepared to take the fight to Putin, they should not have started something they can't possibly win. I understand there comes a time when people just can't take it anymore, but get serious, people of Ukraine. Beef up your military and your treasury before you go to war with Russia.

you got that right!

One small detail I would like to highlight here: the "heroes" who fought "so bravely the fascists" were the closest allies of those fascists when it came to the invasion of Poland and other regions in Eastern Europe in 1939. It was not only ok to slaughter communist emigres from Germany by delivering them on a silver plate to Stalin's best buddy in crime, Hitler, it was also a heroic deed to invade and exterminate the elites of the countries that fell victim to this diabolic bargain. Invading, looting, raping, killing, exterminating by slave labor on a huge scale in close co-operation with the Nazis until 1941 - that's the truth about the "Russian heroes" that are so worshipped by some disgusting wankers in this forum. The Ribbentrop-Molotov pact is one of the most infamous documents of the 20th century and it shows that Ivan Grosnyi, Stalin and Putin are thinking exactly in the same categories. It's all about the Russian Imperium, and those who are in the way...they will get what they deserve (in the eyes of Ubermensch V. Putin).

Facist Europeans and American thugs? Funny, I thought it was Russian troops in independent Ukraine that were the imperialist thugs. The only thing that will be achieved will be that world opinion will view Russia as a bullying country run by gangsters, not the hero's who defeated the fascist invaders in 1945

Ukraina is shaking between Rusia and USA, neither Russia nor USA will help to Ukraine. They just use it in regards of external puposes. For me Usa use it to weaken Russia, and Russia just try to protect from Usa and its invansion in Eastern Europe.

Agent Pick-a-dildo,

You hear voices? Get help!

Agent Piccadilly - 2 Mar 2014 // 22:10:38

What is it with these Turks like Seedy and George Zheliazkov spreading their fascist, pro-moslem nonsense on this forum? The people of Bulgaria AND Ukraine have spoken and their voices are clear that they want closer ties with Russia and protection from the fascist european & american thugs who try to destabilize our peaceful countries just like they have done repeatedly throughout history.

Benkovski - 2 Mar 2014 // 21:36:49

Dear Picadilly if you wish Putin in Bulgaria you are not be able this kind of nonsense. He will lock you up.
This whole Crimea is big rubbish. To protect russian people !? Only what is good for Russia
Ukraine the biggest corrupt country in the world!! About $70 billion dissapeared from the country thanks to the coward President and his "followers".
Till so far I didn't see any benefits for the people if ruled by the Commies.

Russia will see to it that the Bulgarian minority get their language rights back!

Behemoth - 2 Mar 2014 // 20:35:01

You mean just like Stalin protected the areas he invaded and added to his imperium just for the noble task in order to protect them? (I mean those people he didn't exterminate - but these were "only" 25 million or so, right?) Or like the Soviets protected Hungary 1956, Prag 1968, Afghanistan, and and and?

By the way, invading a foreign country is illegal. So you think we should applaud him for this violation of international law? And didn't he say recently that he considers it as illegal to invade a country? Ah ok, that was Syria where Russia has an important marine basis - double standards, as usual.

You cannot really believe what you write here. I am surprised that the Department of Information in Moscow is choosing dimwits like you in order to trying to influence the public opinion in its backyard.

Agent Piccadilly - 2 Mar 2014 // 20:07:33

Behemoth, Russia is only protecting the citizens of Ukraine against the fascist thugs who staged a military coup - Putin should be applauded for his actions and invited to do the same in Bulgaria.

Behemoth - 2 Mar 2014 // 19:41:21

Yeah right. Getting the ok from the Russian puppet "parliament" (with 100% of the votes and no discussion, just like in the "good old days") for an invasion, sending 15,000 troops in order to invade a foreign territory - that's exactly the "peaceful" way how the Russian administration understands that it is opposed to intervening in Ukraine's internal affairs. Not to meddle into the interior policy of an independent and sovereign country applies according to Mr Putin obviously only when this country is using chemical weapons and Russian arms to kill innocent children, women, old people, civilians, like in Syria, and is offering a nice naval base for the Russian marine in the Mediterranean.

What's next? Invading Lithuania? Anyway, he will get away with it.
