"We have taken note of high voter turnout despite attempts to derail the voting and we condemn the force used, including military hardware, against civilians, which lead to fatalities," the Kremlin said in a statement.

"Moscow respects the will of the population of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions and hopes that the practical implementation of the outcome of the referendums will proceed along civilized lines, without repeat outbreaks of violence and through dialogue between representatives of Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk. In the interests of establishing such a dialogue all mediation efforts will be welcome,” the Kremlin press service said.
