Russia:won't intervene in Ukrainian crisis

JERUSALEM, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov Tuesday ruled out his country's intervention in the crisis in the Ukraine.

Lavrov spoke amid reports of heightened tension in Kiev following allegations that the presidential elections there had been rigged. Hundreds of thousands of supporters of the reformist candidate Viktor Yuschenko were reportedly gathering in Kiev to protest the claim that Moscow's candidate, Victor Yanukovich, had won.
