Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin thinks that the trust lost between Ukraine and Russia has to be restored. In his opinion, it is also important for both countries to take initiative in this process.
He stated this in a live interview on TV 5 Monde, reports 112.ua.
“At the moment, relations with Russia are incredibly difficult because they lack the necessary trust. It is important to rebuild the former trust in relations between Ukraine and Russia. But this depends not only on Ukraine’s will, but also on the will of Russia. And it is important for this desire not to be judged by words alone, but by real action,” said Klimkin.
The head of the Ukrainian MFA noted that Russia is also part of Europe and therefore European values and norms should prevail there too.
