Lavrov: threats of use of nuclear weapons against Ukraine sounds

MOSCOW, January 26. Russia didn’t violate Budapest Memorandum, said the head of Russian foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov at a press conference at the end of 2015.

“The Budapest Memorandum contains a single commitment: not to use against Ukraine’s nuclear weapons. No one did and no threats to use nuclear weapons against Ukraine did not sound,” he said.

The Minsk agreements approved by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, who determines the foreign policy of the country, and not someone else., also stressed Sergei Lavrov.

“I hard to comment (the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk on the referendum on the implementation of the “Minsk-2” – approx.), because the “Minsk-2″ was signed and approved by the President Petro Poroshenko – Lavrov said, responding to a question. – Another thing is how this implementation is carried out”.

According to him, the Ukrainian government is fair and consistent implementation of the agreements that accompany the radicals, trying not fair to interpret the agreement. “The current version of the Constitution of Ukraine is quite confusing, but what is responsible for foreign policy the President, nobody disagrees with that,” added the Minister.

“Poroshenko said that there is no “Minsk-3″, will not, and the representative of Ukraine in the contact group says the opposite, then I heard the words Yatsenyuk about the referendum, then the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada said that the referendum to do… – he noted. – Yatsenyuk said a lot of things, he was such a good foreign Minister. It seemed to me, a reasonable man, delved into the case, but, obviously, fell under the evil influence from the outside.”
