Russia surprised at refusal of EU representatives to comment on Ashton talk on Ukraine snipers

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has paid attention to the audio record of the talk between the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and Estonia’s Foreign Minister Urmas Paet about the situation in Ukraine, a source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“We have paid attention to this audio record, and we are surprised to hear that the EU refuses to give its commentary on that score. As you know, some time ago the high-ranking representatives of the EU member countries actively commented on the audio record of Victoria Nuland,” a Foreign Ministry official said .

Earlier a remark appeared on the Facebook page of the Russian Foreign Ministry, which said: “As it appears, the European Union is well aware of the fact that the Ukrainian opposition backed the snipers on the Maidan Square!”
