Russia's Lavrov dismisses U.S. criticism over Ukraine

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday dismissed U.S. accusations that Moscow was destabilising Ukraine and said the situation could improve only if the interests of Russian speakers are taken into account.

Speaking at a joint news conference in Moscow with Angolan Foreign Minister Georges Chikoti, Lavrov reiterated Moscow's call for constitutional reforms in Ukraine to guarantee the rights of Russian speakers there.
