Statement on Ukraine, attributable to State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki

The following is a statement on Ukraine, attributable to State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki.

Secretary Kerry shares the grave concerns expressed by Vice President Biden directly to President Yanukovych today regarding the unacceptable violence on the streets of Kyiv. We call on President Yanukovych and the Ukrainian government to de-escalate the situation immediately, and resume dialogue with the opposition on a peaceful path forward. Ukraine’s deep divisions will not be healed by spilling more innocent blood.
