Lavrov: we will not leave Donbass in danger


RF Foreign Ministry Russia is doing its best to prevent escalation of violence in Donbass, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. He has reminded that our country is a peaceful nation having no territorial claims to neighboring countries, TASS reports.

“We are interested in successful and prosperous neighbors to build good partner relations with them”, Lavrov stated. He has underlined that Russia will put efforts to cool down some “hot heads” in the Ukrainian capital and will not allow a new turn of violence. “We will not leave Donbass population in danger anyway”, the minister claimed.

Lavrov has also indicated that nobody doubts today that Kiev with its single-minded reluctance to fulfill Minsk II obligations is the main obstacle on the way of settling the conflict.

Foreign Minister assured that Russia would continue making Kiev lift the Donbass blockade and start observing Minsk II agreements. At this, Lavrov has expressed sincere hope that the Western countries have the same view of this situation.
