 Maidan Had the Purpose to Harm Russia and "Russian People" - Lavrov

Minister of Foreign affairs of Russia Sergei Lavrov said that Ukrainian Maidan has fulfilled a geopolitical project to do the interests of Russia an ill turn.

He stated this at a press conference on Monday, Ukrainian Pravda reports.

"There was a sort of geopolitical project formed which began to develop on the Maidan late last year. This project was based on far-fetched pretext when the legitimate president was denied the right to take additional time to study the effects of the Association Agreement conclusion with the European Union," the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry said

According to him, Maidan targeted to harm Russia and "Russian people".

"Maidan was gathered. It became clear by analyzing of its development that it is actually a geopolitical project aimed at mastering the Ukrainian geopolitical space to the detriment of Russia's interests, to the detriment of the interests of the Russians and Russian-speaking population of Ukraine," Lavrov said.

"They did not manage to do this immediately and they would not because it's impossible to impose this kind of things to one side," Lavrov is determined.

Lavrov was outraged that there was no dialogue promised personally by Petro Poroshenko and no one of the Western partners "was even trying to encourage the Ukrainian authorities to fulfill their promises to first of all start a national dialogue regarding the public opinion of the State where all these people, all these regions will be able to live in peace and stability."

Russian Foreign Minister suggested that some politicians impose sanctions against Russia feeling their inability to "make the Ukrainian leadership to fulfill the agreements."
