Foreign Minister Meets Russian Counterpart on Ukraine, Energies

Slovak Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, Miroslav Lajcak, was doing his part for European and international relations today, as he met in Moscow with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov to discuss the tense relations that now reign between the European Union and Russia over its involvement in Ukraine crisis.

The bilateral talks also focused on crucial energy supplies from Russia, which pass through Ukraine and Slovakia to the rest of the European Union, with Russia already having warned Ukraine it would cut off supplies on 2nd June if it doesn’t settle its massive gas bill.

The ministers both endorsed the need to give diplomacy a chance in resolving the Ukraine crisis, calling for a deescalation of tensions. Ukraine will have its presidential elections on 25 May, with Lajcak calling for the conditions to be created to allow the elections to go undisturbed, saying they are important for “restoring the legitimacy of the Ukrainian government and stabilising the situation in the country”.
