Ukraine is on the verge of a civil war, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday.

“Blood has been shed in Ukraine again. The country is on the threshold of a civil war,” Medvedev said.

“This is a great tragedy,” he said, adding that the country’s new leadership had failed to maintain law and order.

“And the illegitimate leaders, on the contrary, hope to restore the order, which they cynically defied, rising to power following an armed coup,” the prime minister wrote, adding that the new Ukrainian authorities are “falling into their own trap.”

“Action has led to reaction. A crime against the state resulted in popular protests in the regions. It’s a chain reaction of events, political and economic,” he said. “It is a pity that people became hostage to ungifted politicians who they didn’t vote for, and irresponsible radicals who took the place of the police and army.”

“Chaos filled in the political void,” he added.
