Below is part of the text of the article, obtained from The Guardian:

    "The profound, pervasive crisis in Ukraine is a matter of grave concern for Russia. We understand perfectly well the position of a country which became independent just over 20 years ago and still faces complex tasks to construct a sovereign state. Among them is the search for a balance of interests among its various regions, the peoples of which have different historical and cultural roots, speak different languages and have different perspectives on their past, present and their country’s future place in the world..."

Meanwhile, the US has warned Russia over escalatory moves in Ukraine and has threatened to target the Russian economy if Russia doesn't de-escalate.


Now that Crimea is not part of Ukraine, Russian President Vladmir Putin is making sure that criminal elements from the former regime are dealt with harshly. Putin called on the Federal Security Service (FSB) to prevent radicals or individuals with a criminal past from working in the Crimean government.

"I ask that you pay special attention to the formation of the FSB's subdivisions in Crimea and Sevastopol," Putin said during a meeting with FSB officials.

"They have the task of not allowing individuals with a criminal past or those with radical and extremist tendencies, as well as those attempting to disrupt the normal development of Crimea and Sevastopol, into government agencies," the Russian president added.      Add Comments>>
