Russian diplomacy in four words: “Respect doesn’t mean recognize”

This is the essence of Russian balancing act between appearing to play by the rules of the West, while showing its full support to Novorossia behind the scenes.

Moscow’s position on the elections in DPR and LPR was expressed by the words from the Foreign Ministry , said the presidential aide Yuri Ushakov.

“The official position of the Russian Federation is expressed in a short but succinct statement of the MFA on the election results. It uses the word “respect,” ” said Ushakov. Responding to a question of whether you can put an equal sign between the terms “respect” and “recognize” about the recent voting in the breakaway republics, he said, “those are different words”, according to RIA Novosti.
