US,EU,Ukraine and Russian Federation agree on "de-escalation road map" Critical Comments from Democracy and Class Struggle

                                                       Lavrov Russian FM

Democracy and Class Struggle says it is worried that the Russian Bourgeoisie is handing the people of the people of the East and South of Ukraine over to the Kiev Putschists by de facto recognition and calling for the end of the occupation of buildings prematurely and we call for vigilance and self reliance has the details of these talks still unfold.

We have had the case of the United Nations in Sri Lanka facilitating the massacre of innocent civilians under guise of protecting them and we do not want to see the OSCE play that role in the Ukraine.

We will study the responses of comrades in the Ukraine to this initial agreement in Geneva but vigilance and self reliance are our watchwords.

When we see the disarmament of The Right Sector and the UNSO we will believe the Roadmap serious.

PS: For example, Yugoslavia's 1999 bombing violated international law and NATO's charter "when a group of OSCE countries....committed aggression against another OSCE country."

Lavrov: Russia, US, EU, Ukraine agreed on Ukraine de-escalation roadmap

The document calls for an “immediate start of a nationwide national dialogue within the framework of the constitutional process, which must be inclusive and accountable,” Lavrov said.

The most important agreement reached during the talks, according to Lavrov, states that the Ukrainian crisis “must be resolved by the Ukrainians themselves concerning an end to the conflict” including those related to “detaining protesters, occupying buildings” and, in the long run “the start of true constitutional reform.”

“Among the steps that have to be taken are: the disarmament of all the illegal armed groups, and the return of all the occupied administrative buildings,” Lavrov told journalists at the Thursday briefing.

“An amnesty for all the protesters must take place, except of those who committed grave crimes,” the Foreign Minister added.

The OSCE’s (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) monitoring mission must play “the leading role” in assisting the Ukrainian authorities to resolve the crisis, Lavrov stressed, adding that Russia “will support” the mission’s work.
