Moscow is urging Kiev to prevent further aggravation of the situation and to stop the country from descending into inter-religious confrontation.

"Russia is worried about non-stop excesses by radicals in Ukraine," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a comment posted on its website. The radicals, who are confident in their "permissiveness and impunity," are continuing to impose their will and rules, the ministry said.

Following political destabilization, the "fragile peace" between religious confessions is now also under fire, Moscow said, adding that there has been an increasing number of threats against Ukrainian Orthodox Church clerics as well as attempts to seize Orthodox sacred places.

Such tendencies are "extremely dangerous" and may lead to "new upheavals and provoke an even deeper split of Ukrainian society," the Foreign Ministry said.
