Russia's rebel vote support 'undermines' peace: Ukraine

AFP , Tuesday 28 Oct 2014

Russia's announcement that it will recognize separatist elections in eastern Ukraine "undermines" attempts to end a six-month war there, a senior Ukrainian foreign ministry official said Tuesday.

"Russia's intentions directly contradict the Minsk (peace) accord, undermine the agreed process on deescalation and peaceful resolution, and continue to weaken trust in it (Russia) as a reliable international partner," the official, Dmytro Kuleba, told AFP.
