MOSCOW, May 7 (Reuters) - The Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday called on Kiev to immediately stop "the use of force against its own people".

"The illegitimate authorities in Kiev go on crudely trampling on widely-recognised rights, with the connivance of their Western patrons," the ministry also said in a statement. (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska, editing by Nigel Stephenson)
