Russia condemns Ukrainian protests as ‘attempted coup’

Published on 19/02/2014

Russia on Wednesday condemned the deadly protests in Ukraine as an attempted coup and demanded that opposition leaders immediately put an end to all violence.

The foreign ministry described the protests across Ukraine as “an attempted coup d’etat” and said in a statement that it “demands that the leaders of the ‘square’ end the bloodshed in their country,” apparently referring to the Independence Square protest hub.
