Russia's Lavrov says Ukraine 'crudely violating' Geneva accord

Text size Aa Aa

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Monday accused Ukraine of violating an accord reached in Geneva last week aimed at averting a wider conflict. “Steps are being taken – above all by those who seized power in Kiyv – not only that do not fulfil, but that crudely violate the Geneva agreement,” he said.

Lavrov also told a news conference that a deadly gunfight early on Sunday near a Ukrainian city controlled by pro-Russian separatists showed Kiev did not want to control “extremists”.
