Russian Foreign Ministry responded to the President of European Council Donald Tusk who said the collapse of the Soviet Union was “a blessing" to Georgians, Poles, Ukrainians and the whole of Central and Eastern Europe, and also to Russians.

Maria Zakharova, head of the press office of the Russian Foreign Ministry wrote on the official Twitter page that the dissolution of the Soviet Union "provoked human tragedy".

Donald Tusk addressed the participants of the two-day Batumi International Conference, dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the EU’s Eastern Partnership initiative that opened earlier on July 11.

EaP is a joint initiative involving the EU, its member states and six Eastern European Partners: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

The Eastern Partnership aims to increase open democracy, prosperity, and stability in the region.
