Russia Says It Is Trying to Prevent Conflict in Eastern Ukraine

Russia said Thursday that it was doing everything possible to prevent hostilities between Ukrainian forces and separatists in eastern Ukraine.

The Interfax news agency cited Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich as saying Kiev was failing to fulfil its obligations under the agreement underpinning a shaky cease-fire in eastern Ukraine, and said he had denied Moscow had sent in troops to back the rebels.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
