Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs

Paris, January 26, 2014

I had a conversation on Sunday with Mr Vitali Klitschko, one of the main leaders of the Ukrainian opposition.

I expressed to him France’s solidarity, and our appeal for an immediate halt to the violence and for the continuation of dialogue between the government and the opposition.

Violence and radicalization cannot be a response to the Ukrainian people’s aspirations. Calls for dialogue must be followed very swiftly by concrete gestures./.
