For Russia, the United States behave "as victors of the Cold War"

And now, a vocabulary which dates from the Cold War. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the United States and the European Union to use Ukraine as a "pawn in the geopolitical game" against Russia and practice a "containment policy" against his countries.

"Our Western partners, primarily the United States, trying to behave as victors of the Cold War, and act as if we could disregard of Russia in European affairs and do things that directly damage the interests of Russia, "said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. "In Ukraine, the United States and the European Union (...) attempted to lead a new color revolution, an operation of unconstitutional change of government in the constitution," Sergei Lavrov accused. Moscow called "color revolution" changes in power as the "orange revolution" in Ukraine in 2004 or the "Rose Revolution" in Georgia in 2003, and accused the West of having provoked in these former Soviet republics.

According to Lavrov, it is to continue "the policy of containment of our country, which in the bottom the West never gave up," he he said, using the term dating from time of the Cold War.

New sanctions against Russia

The US maintains pressure. US President Barack Obama accuses Russia of not respecting the international agreement of Geneva and the threat of further sanctions. "We continue to see malicious gunmen take buildings, harassing people who do not agree with them, destabilize the region and we have not seen Russia intervene to discourage," said the US president. But Barack Obama, however, has not set a deadline, and reiterated that there would be "no military solution to the problem in Ukraine".

The escalation continues, however, Russia has acknowledged that troops massed at the Ukrainian border and saying is ready to intervene if its interests were threatened, while 150 American soldiers arrived in Poland on 600 announced by Washington. In eastern Ukraine, after the death of several pro-Russian activists during the Easter weekend and the two Ukrainian nationalists, Kiev claims to have regained control of the town of Mariupol port 500 000, which was occupied by the pro-Russian separatists since April 13. A Slavyansk, pro-Russian bastion 100 000, shots were heard and a checkpoint would flame more sign that Kiev is engaged in the reconquest of the territory, despite the first hesitant.
