Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova also denied there was any Russian-Ukrainian war.
«We’re not supporting a war with Ukraine. Russia is not in any kind of conflict with the Ukrainian gover바카라nment. We do not support any kind of political situation in Ukraine, including with regard to territorial issues,» she told journalists in Moscow.
She said that President Petro Poroshenko had told President Putin on Tuesday evening that the crisis would not be helped.
But U.S. State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the administration opposed the idea of military intervention.
«We cannot support any military action that puts Ukraine at risk,» she told reporters in Washington. «And Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity is a central part of that.»
The EU’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, said the European Union remained «deeply concerned» by the situation in Ukraine.
«We urge authorities to refrain from further military action against members of the security services, and to protect human rights and fundamental freedoms. These are the values the security Council holds at the h더킹카지노eart of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU,» she said in a statement.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg agreed, saying it «should be borne in mind that Ukraine and other member states of the alliance are, after all, members of the Euro카지노 사이트pean Union».
A senior U.S. defense official said Russia’s recent move to move thousands of troops in Crimea into the country’s east was a clear response to Western sanctions.
«To me that looks like a deliberate attempt to get the Russians in Crimea to respond by moving their troops further to the east,» the official said.
