Ukraine can't function as unified state, Lavrov says

By The Associated Press

— Russia's foreign minister said Ukraine can't function as a "unified state" and should be a loose federation of regions that choose their own economic model, language and religion.

Sergei Lavrov said he and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the possibility of a federated Ukrainian state at "very, very constructive" late-night talks Sunday in Paris.

The talks are part of broader diplomatic efforts to defuse the crisis in Ukraine after protests drove out a pro-Russian president and Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula in response.

He said he and Kerry agreed to work with the Ukrainian government to improve rights for Russian-speaking Ukrainians and disarming "irregular forces and provocateurs."

Those "irregular forces and provocateurs" are Neo Nazis that the United States support in this miss to begin with.

Perhaps there's a lesson here for the United States since we seem increasingly unable to function as a unified state..................
