Ukrainian acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deschytsia called Lavrov on
Saturday and, “in the course of the conversation, tried to hold Russia
accountable for the aggravation of the situation in the south and
southeast of Ukraine,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“He claimed that some Russian agents are active in those regions, and that several of them have been arrested already,” it said.
“Lavrov answered that there was no reason for such allegations. He
mentioned that similar complaints about Russia came from Washington but
that no specific facts had been cited to us,” the ministry said.
