Reuters , Wednesday 5 Mar 2014

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has told EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton an EU-brokered agreement signed on 21 February should be the basis for stabilising the situation in Ukraine, the ministry said on Wednesday.

In a statement, Russia's Foreign Ministry said at a meeting on Tuesday "Lavrov emphasised that the normalisation of the situation in that country should be based on the founding principles of the agreement about regulating the crisis in Ukraine on 21 February".

He said the agreement foresaw constitutional reform which would take into account the wishes of all regions in Ukraine.
