The EU has once again shown a complete lack of understanding of the unfolding situation in Ukraine; even worse than that, the EU shows complete unwillingness to understand and acknowledge reasons and motives behind the events including the needs of the Ukrainian people of the country's south-eastern regions," the Russian Foreign Ministry Information and Press department said in a statement on Tuesday.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov remarked that the west described the violent uprising in Kiev, which resulted in dozens of deaths as an act of democracy, while it calls the ongoing peaceful protests in South-East Ukraine an act of terrorism.
The Russian foreign minister drew attention on the double standards policies of hypocritical western politicians.
The Russian foreign minister called on the Interim President of Ukraine to release more information on the proposed East-Ukrainian referendum. He repeated that Russia supports the united Ukraine but Easterners should be given a chance to take part in the drafting of the new Ukrainian constitution.
