Ukraine's Foreign Ministry calls on Ukraine's partners in Europe to conduct a careful dialogue with Russia, Deputy Foreign Minister Danylo Lubkivsky told reporters in Kyiv on Thursday.
At the same time, the diplomat voiced hope that "all European partners will adhere to the values that define European civilization,” such as democracy, respect for human rights, solidarity and protection of those rights. Lubkivsky also warned the European community not to become hostage to the "alternate reality" that "the Kremlin consistently and thoughtlessly is trying to create." "The latest example of this ideology was the speech of President Putin at a meeting with Russian diplomatic corps. This is the example of the alternate reality that actually undermines the entire international world order," Lubkivsky said.
