Lavrov panicking: Russian Foreign Ministry complains to U.S. about ‘foreign legion’ in Ukraine

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov complains about the fact that the arrival of American marines and their possible presence in the ranks of the Ukrainian troops in the Donbas is the proof of Kyiv breaching its obligations.

According to the statement published on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry, on Wednesday, Lavrov held a telephone conversation with the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
