Russian Foreign Minister demands American Secretary of State to END UKRAINIAN JUNTA'S MILITARY Operations in south and east Ukraine ~ link ~
A Russian government statement said that Mr Lavrov had made his demand during a telephone call with the US politician.
Mr Lavrov "underscored the need for an immediate halt by Kiev of the punitive operation in the southeastern regions and for the swiftest possible launch of a nationwide dialogue, including direct talks with representatives of the southeast, in the interests of a peaceful solution," the foreign ministry said.

The volunteer National Guard said gunmen had sprung a surprise raid Wednesday on their barracks in the flashpoint Lugansk region near Russia that had been under effective rebel control since early April. "There have been losses both in the ranks of the military unit and the attacking side," the National Guard said in a brief statement.
"There can be no justification for the punitive operation being conducted by the Kiev authorities," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said. 'This cannot continue forever'
