Illegitimate Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk has urged the Russian authorities to start negotiations on the peaceful regulation of the crisis in the country.
"We ask and urge the Russian government to recall their military to barracks, not to support the illegitimate so-called government of the Crimea and start negotiations for peaceful regulation," Yatsenyuk stated as a press conference in Brussels.
In addition, he pointed out that the Crimea remains and will remain an inseparable part of Ukraine. The so-called referendum, which the autonomous republic is to hold on March 16th, has no legal grounds whatsoever, Yatsenyuk added.
"I called upon the Russian government not to support those, who call for separatism," Yatsenyuk said.
"We should use shock therapy to sober up the Americans. In this case, the Americans will speak about the need to resume dialogue. There is no other option"
The United States is concerned about the current crisis in the relations with Russia and suggests returning to reasonable policies to avoid a nuclear war
