Russian President Vladimir Putin said that relations between the Russian Federation and Ukraine will be “inevitably restored,” regardless of how relations with the Ukrainian elites develop.
“It is inevitable that we will restore our relationship, there can be no such thing between parts of the same people or between two fraternal peoples, no matter how developed our relations with the elites.
Even with the political elites of the past, for example, with those people who at the forefront of all their activities, their entire lives put primarily personal success, personal gain and the preservation of their capital, acquired at the expense of the Ukrainian people, and stored somewhere abroad. From this they have such a love for the West, I think, “- said Putin.
“But I hope that the new leadership is devoid of such restrictions and feels free, relying on the trust that has been shown by the people of Ukraine,” he added.
In his opinion, the Zelensky team “will be able to act energetically.”
