Presidential poll 'destructive' for Ukraine: Russian FM

AFP , Wednesday 23 Apr 2014

Ukraine's going ahead with its May 25 presidential election without consulting first with pro-Russian voters "is very destructive for the country," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday in an interview with state-controlled RT television.

He said Moscow would only "recognise something that would be based on the all-inclusive process", adding, "to call an election without finding some common ground with the east and the south of Ukraine I think is very destructive for the country."
