Expert on EU-Russia dispute over Ukraine

The ongoing crisis in Crimea has caused a vehement dispute between the Russian authorities and European officials. Vestnik Kavkaza discussed the situation surrounding the Ukrainian crisis with Director of the Political Information Centre Alexey Mukhin.


According to the expert, the emotional reaction of Western powers to the crisis was based on unverified reports, according to which Russia has already deployed its military forces on Ukrainian territory.


The expert welcomes the position of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who agreed to hold talks concerning the Ukrainian crisis and to send a group of international observers to Crimea.


According to Mukhin, this initiative may lead to a successful resolution of the conflict.
