May 2, 2014

The President is following closely developments in southeast Ukraine, where a military operation is taking place against supporters of federalisation.

Special Presidential Envoy Vladimir Lukin was sent to Ukraine to take part in talks on freeing the foreign military observers taken hostage earlier. Russian officials have not been able to make contact with Mr Lukin since the Ukrainian military operation began.
