Russia 'not inclined' to take over southeast Ukraine - senior official

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Tuesday there was no reason to fear Moscow would try to take over southeastern Ukraine following its annexation of Crimea, Interfax news agency reported.

"We are - and I underscore this - not at all inclined to repeat the so-called Crimea scenario in southeastern Ukraine. There are no grounds to fear this," Interfax quoted Ryabkov as telling news website gazeta.ru.
