State Duma is concerned over the developments in the brotherly Ukraine
The Russian State Duma condemns some of Ukraine's radical opposition forces, Boris Gryzlov, State Duma speaker, said Wednesday to reporters after the lower house adopted a statement on the situation in Ukraine. "We censure the actions of some radical forces that have been trying to provoke public disorder in Ukraine for three days now," said Mr. Gryzlov. In his words, the State Duma is concerned over the developments in the brotherly Ukraine. The lower house also believes that the outcome of the Ukrainian elections to be announced by the election commission soon will be the final result, said Mr. Gryzlov. In his opinion, the Ukrainian election commission should come under no external pressure. According to State Duma observers, all the registered wrongdoings cannot influence the outcome of the elections, said the speaker. State Duma deputies expressed concern over the situation in Ukraine, says the statement on the situation in Ukraine that deputies adopted today. The statement was supported by 423 deputies, with six abstentions. "Deputies of the State Duma of the Russian Federal Assembly express deep concern over the illegal actions of Ukraine's radical opposition forces, which may lead to dramatic consequences for the brotherly people," the document runs. When commenting on the statement, one of its authors, Andrei Kokoshin, chairman of the committee for CIS affairs and ties with compatriots, said, "the results of the elections in Ukraine are of real importance for Russia that has long-standing close ties with Ukraine. Therefore, we want to inform the public of our position." State Duma deputies proceed from the assumption that although the presidential elections in Ukraine were a heated struggle, they have taken place, the deputy said. According to him, only the Central Election Commission of Ukraine, under the Ukrainian law, has the right to announce the results of the elections, given no pressure on the commission. "We declare our respect for the will of the Ukrainian citizens, expressed on November 21, 2004 during the Ukrainian presidential elections, and come out for the conflict situation to be solved on a legal basis alone, within the Constitution and the election law of Ukraine," said Mr. Kokoshin. "Any arbitrary attempts to seize power are considered a crime in all countries of the world," the document says.
