Q : Tensions are increasing in Crimea where the Russian flag has been raised at the government headquarters. What is France’s reaction to the latest events and the Russian statements this morning? Are there any diplomatic initiatives to calm the situation, for example discussions between the 5 permanent members of the Security Council?

A : As Mr. Laurent Fabius has indicated on several occasions, France is very attached to the unity of Ukraine.

The changing situation in Crimea is troubling and we call for efforts to ease tensions.
