Impossible To Resolve Ukraine Crisis By Military Means: Osce Official

MOSCOW, Sept 4 (Bernama) - Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) parliamentary assembly president Ilkka Kanerva said it is impossible to settle the Ukrainian crisis by military means, Russia's Itar-Tass news agency reported.

Kanerva said during a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday that a political solution must be found.

Kanerva said his delegation had arrived in Moscow "not to urge to do anything or act in some way".

"Our position will not be arrogant or aggressive," he said.

All are greatly concerned about the worsening situation in eastern Ukraine and on the Ukrainian-Russian border, he added.
